GAS Station is a new space dedicated to projects,
ideas and conversations that live somewhere
in the intersection between Games, Live Arts and Technology.

GAS often supports early stage projects with space,
equipment and mentoring, fostering partnerships and exchanges between professionals
from a range of creative areas.

Jorge Lopes Ramos and Persis Jade Maravala have worked as joint artistic/executive directors of ZU-UK (London) since 2006 and of Centro Popular de Conspiração Gargarullo (Rio de Janeiro) from 2012 to 2014.  Their artistic work has won awards and nominations in the fields of interactive theatre, hybrid art and innovation.  Their most acclaimed project, Hotel Medea, was the highest rated event by both public and press, becoming the standout hit of the world’s largest art festival, the Edinburgh Fringe 2011, presented also at LIFT2010 and Hayward Gallery in 2012.  Jorge and Persis Jade have published academic papers on immersive theatre, programmed live and digital festivals, created a telematic exhibition for the Olympics in 2012, the World Cup in 2014 and coached emerging artists in over 10 countries since 2006.
