Prior to 2020 the digital space was starting to become a playground for dance, but with the unprecedented changes brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic, the place of digital within the dance world has been accelerated dramatically.

Kenneth Tindall (Choreographer in Residence and Artistic Director of Digital at Northern Ballet) and Sean Clarke (founder of Test Card) will discuss how working in film/digital and for online has changed and informed approaches to their work. What has been learnt and what can we all take forward in creative practice when thinking about the digital online space?
