Demoscene Competitions

Assembly rises from the roots of the demoscene. At best demos are a piece of handmade art put together with passion and high level of skills. In this event, you will see a tightly packed combination of demoscene art productions from graphics, music, and real-time competitions. Join us at the venue to see the impressive works of art on the big screen, and vote for your favorite! You can also follow the whole program and vote online. See more at Demoscene competitions

Assembly x Opera Beyond -  Pushing the limits of new immersive technology 

The Finnish National Opera and Ballet and Assembly organized together an open call for teams to propose creative technological concepts that take live performance into new heights. We have now chosen the top 4 finalists out of dozens of comprehensive applications, and these teams will be pitching their ideas at the event. By the end of the evening one team will be chosen as the winner. Which one are you rooting for? See more at 

Sarah Brin - Coming Home to the Metaverse

In this presentation, futurist and senior producer Sarah Brin demonstrates some of the historic lineages of expansive storyworlds, and distills some key design principles for creative technology practice, worldbuilding, and meaningful connections with audiences

Annette Mees - Building new kinds of theatre, together

Why should theatre makers work with technologists? The rapidly changing technologies offer a chance to explore how we make anew. Together they can broaden how we connect to stories and one another. Annette Mees has made immersive theatre and playful experiences for over 20 years and next week she will be lifting the veil on how to build creative teams that cross tech and theatre.
