A virtual reality experience will form part of the Digital Performance Weekender annual festival at Watermans in Brentford.

Creative new media artists from all over the world, from Brighton to South Africa, will gather to deliver an explosive programme of digital performances, dance, workshops, installations and interactive events, on Saturday November 14 and Sunday November 15 .

This year's theme Data Bodies explores privacy and its impact on future generations.

Highlights include a dance and music ensemble of Alexander Whitley's visually striking choreography in The Measures Taken, a solo adaptation, which was a sell-out in Sadlers Wells and the Royal Opera House.

People will also have the chance to go on a virtual reality adventure on a journey of discovery into the world of bacteria with artist Anna Dumitriu's latest work Sequence; and go on an immersive adventure with Crew's C.A.P.E (Computer Automatic Personal Environment).

Other events during the weekender include the unmissable Symposium, bringing together an expert panel to discuss issues around data privacy, along with exhibitions and a chance for children to hack their electronic toys in the circuit bending orchestra workshop.

Most events are free of charge.
