Other events that visitors can hope to experience includes Robbie Thomson exploring the possibilities of harnessing the Telsa coil as a musical instrument with his XFRMR show. 

We Are Now was established by Megan Kieran; a creative producer with a passion for exploring the use of technology to connect to other people and the world in general. She says “We are very excited to present this year’s programme for We Are Now. The work is incredibly strong and truly represents where we can go with this sensational next wave of performance. We hope to immerse audiences, to invite new sensations and experiences and to provoke thought and discussion around how we can reclaim our use of technologies and harness their creative potential.”

The festival is supported by the Arts Council England and is a winner of the DBACE Awards for Creative Enterprise in 2017.
