Periaktoi.eu aims to promote knowledge and dissemination in Italy of “digital performance”, ie of all forms of live performance in which computer technology

“play a key role rather than a subsidiary one in content, techniques, aesthetics or delivery forms”

(Dixon, “Digital Performance”, MIT Press, 2007).

It’s co-promoted by HG80 and Smart-It, and is realized with the support of Innovacultura – Lombardy Region, Lombard Chambers of Commerce and Cariplo Foundation, as part of “Augmented Stage” project in partnership with Ilinx Theatre and DelleAli.

The site aims to be a place of study, discussion, dissemination of good practices and opportunities for all those working in the world of theatrical, dance education and performance in general.

Anyone curious about the meaning of the term periaktoi, one of the first technologies used in the theater scene of ancient Greece, can satisfy their curiosity by referring to the specific page on Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Periaktos
