Timeline of Helen Varley Jamieson


In 2016, Jamieson was instrumental in organising the first meeting of the Magdalena Project in Munich, Germany.


In 2008 Helen Varley Jamieson completed her MA (research) degree in Cyberformance from Queensland University of Technology entitled “Adventures in Cyberformance: experiments at the interface of theatre and the internet.”


The cyberformance platform UpStage was developed by Avatar Body Collision, and used for their performances from 2004. Jamieson continues to be active within the UpStage community, using the platform for her online performances and organising events. From 2007 to 2012 she along with Vicki Smith and others curated and produced the series of six annual UpStage festivals, featuring programmes of cyberformance by artists from around the world.


Since 2000, Jamieson has collaborated internationally on numerous theatre, digital and online projects. Her artistic work contributes significantly to the emergent artform of cyberformance, and to the development and documentation of networked collaboration practices. She is an active participant in networks concerned with performance, online and digital art, and women’s art and tech networks.


Discovering online performance through Desktop Theater in 1999, Jamieson went on to produce an experimental hybrid online-offline research and performance project, the[abc]experiment, at BATS Theatre, Wellington, in 2001. As a result of this she formed the globally distributed cyberformance troupe Avatar Body Collision with Vicki Smith (Aotearoa New Zealand), Karla Ptaček (UK) and Leena Saarinen (Finland). From 2002 to 2007, Avatar Body Collision devised and performed 10 cyberformances, including hybrid online-offline work and performances that took place entirely online. The group functioned completely online and the four members have never met in the same physical space.


Helen Varley Jamieson is a digital media artist, playwright, performer, director and producer from New Zealand. She “is engaged in an ongoing exploration of the collision between theatre and the internet.” Since 1997 she has been working on the internet professionally. In the year 2000 Helen Varley Jamieson coined the term cyberformance. This term is a combination of two words, cyberspace and performance. Jamieson states that “cyberformance can be located as a distinct form within the subsets of networked performance and digital performance, and within the overall form of theatre, as it is a live performance form with an audience that is complicit in the completion of the work in real time.”

Since 1997, Helen has been involved in the Magdalena Project, an international network of women in contemporary performance and theatre. She became involved with the New Zealand group, Magdalena Aotearoa, helping with the organisation of their 1999 International Festival of Women’s Performance, and following that developed the Magdalena Project’s first website. She became the project’s “web queen” and continues to voluntarily maintain and update the project’s web site and email list – since 2011 with the assistance of “web princess” Valentina Tibaldi. She has attended and presented her work at many Magdalena festivals around the world. Significantly, in 2001 at the Transit III festival (Odin Teatret, Denmark), she presented for the first time a cyberformance to a theatre audience; the audience response to this work challenged her to explore the intersection of theatre and the internet in her ongoing work and forms a starting point for her Masters’ thesis.


Beginning with children’s theatre classes at the Globe Theatre, Dunedin in the 1970s, Jamieson progressed to writing and directing plays at high school then studying theatre and playwriting (with Roger Hall) at the University of Otago. During the 1980s, she was a member of the Women’s Performance Art Collective in Dunedin. In 1992 she was commissioned to write a play commemorating the centenary of women’s suffrage in New Zealand, and her play Women Like Us was produced in Dunedin and Wellington (1993–94). During the 1990s she wrote, directed and produced plays at Taki Rua and BATS Theatre in Wellington, including co-directing with Tamsin Larby The Debate by Riwia Brown in the inaugural Young and Hungry season (1994). In 1994-95 she worked on Artslink, a community arts project in Wellington that aimed to develop an online database of arts information, and other arts administration, marketing and production jobs before moving into the web development industry.
