animate! at Numero Projecta Lisbon

2 - 12 November 2006

The Numero Festival, now in its seventh year, is one of the most important festivals of the Portuguese capital. During ten intense days the event promotes multimedia arts (video, cinema & cutting edge technological arts) and numeric culture, where sound and images are inseparable.

This year animate! contributes two programmes from its catalogue of commissions:

Friday 3 November 16.30
animate!: Life Beyond Live-Action. Thirteen films from animate!’s first fifteen years of commissioning. In each work the artist breaks the rules and demonstrates that life is most exciting ‘beyond live-action’:
