Welcome to this video tutorial about Telematic Performances, produced by our research group at Zurich University of the Arts.
Telematic performances, also called network performances, connect performers (be it musicians, dancers, actors, etc.) situated at two or more geographically distributed locations. They are connected by communication technologies that enable live interaction.
