080808, the second UpStage festival of online performance, took place on 8 August 2008, featuring 13 performances by artists from around the world, and RL access nodes in Wellington, Munich, Oslo and LA.
What was most engaging about the cyberformance experience was the sense of the performances forming in the very moment of the encounter, and the sense that spectators participated in this encounter.
