Ildiko’s research focuses on new technologies in contemporary performance and the virtual presence of “non-performers” in theatre.
Ildiko is co-founder and artistic director of Zoo Indigo, Nottingham (www.zooindigo.co.uk), which has been creating and touring innovative contemporary theatre in collaboration with new media artists since 2002. Through the use of humour and the reprocessing of cultural images, Zoo Indigo’s work explores the accidental, anecdotal and autobiographical, with a focus on interactive new technology. Her research explores the digital “non-performer”, through involving live video connections to the performers’ sleeping children in Zoo Indigo’s performance Under the Covers (2009-2013).
