Ada Lovelace wrote the world’s first complex algorithm in 1843 and then was written out of history. In Ada.Ada.Ada, Lovelace tells her story using an LED dress which she operates – live on stage – using her wearable tech satin glove.
Ada.Ada.Ada exists to help people, especially girls and women, engage with technology and stem as a career.
Ada.Ada.Ada is a high impact performance with associated talks, workshops and events for schools, businesses, public engagement and conferences.
