EdgeCut is a monthly performance series that convenes at NEW INC, the art, tech and design incubator at The New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York. We present short works of live performance that explore our complex relationship to the digital—looking at the many ways interactivity, games, robotics, wearables, AI and other digital technologies inform new practices in live performance.
