Dr. Diana Serbanescu

Romanian engineer and performance artist Diana Serbanescu envisions the dance-theatre of the future: playful, subversive, interactive, underpinned by new technologies. She explores the potential of sentimental machines: the new human, the measurability of emotion, or the continued validity of traditions in an era of artificial intelligence and digital colonisation, when technologies permeate the collective unconscious and generate new aesthetics. Her previous research work ranges from stage-screen montage to testing software for real-time systems.
