This week on State of the Art, Arts House Artistic Director Emily Sexton calls in to chat about BLEED (Biennial Live Event in the Everyday Digital).


BLEED is a new ten-week digital festival presented away from gatherings in auditoriums and conceived pre-COVID-19 by Arts House (Melbourne) and Campbelltown Arts Centre (Sydney).


From 22 June to 30 August 2020, BLEED will interrogate how live Australian performance can be co-created with residencies, research and presentations as they seek to understand, stretch and respond to our digital existence and experience.


Arts House Artistic Director, Emily Sexton, explains that our lives are saturated with digital possibilities and engagement, “We live in an intimate digital world. A virtual co-presence is a normal part of our every day.”


Technology is not neutral – it has motives and is influential. BLEED asks how does the online affect us?
