Shortwave is Sydney Opera House’s platform for interdisciplinary Australian artists, commissioned to create new work which explores and extends their digital practice.
In the 2023 program, Brad Darkson, Nasim Patel, JD Reforma, Claudia Nicholson, Riana Head-Toussaint and Feras Shaheen present performance films that speak to our moment, channelling dance, the internet, photography, disability and artificial intelligence to reimagine their creative relationship with technology.
