Contemporary Performing Arts Testbed

  • David GiarettaEmail author


Since the 1970s, the field of performance arts has quickly evolved thanks to the development of, and innovation in computers, software and electronic devices that have transformed stage practices.

This initially applied to music, but quickly expanded to dance, theatre and installations.
