CreW is a performance group and multi-disciplinary team of artists and scientists, centred on visual artist Eric Joris. CREW explores new forms of theatricality taking technology as a starting point, rather than embedding technology in traditional theatre structures. CREW’s goal is to integrate technology and live performance, and to engineer different layers of reality in theatre and live performance that translate technological schemes and structures into dramaturgical concepts.
CREW explores and develops immersive media, putting the spectator at the heart of the performance, extending the boundaries of performing arts and film. CREW’s creations range from one-to-one performances, theatre stage productions and visual art installations to scientific research set-ups and interventions in public spaces. CREW’s work has been presented on stages across Europe, at large public events from Brussels to Shanghai, and at scientific and academic conferences in Europe, China and the US.
