I recently hosted conversations on Theatre and Media in which we discussed ways that theatre artists, companies, and audiences could utilize the online space. If you'd like to explore a particular area within the online space (e.g., development, performance, marketing) click on the image and select the areas you're interested in. This will help me organize resources and possible paths forward.
I put together this 3-minute video on how we can use free technology to make live performance accessible to those who can’t get to the theatre. For some reason, the video exported at a smaller file size than expected, so for the best clarity make sure your YouTube quality setting is on HD — because nobody likes a fuzzy tech tutorial! 😄 Click on the image to play.
Interview with Playwright Wei He. Wei talks about the journey of writing her play Li and the challenges facing international playwrights. Click on the image for the 5 min video.
Accessibility and Education are two of the most crucial areas that an online space can address. Click on the image for clips from Aimee Levesque, Katie Osborn, Riley Dungan, and Verneice Turner as they reflect on these two areas in our Theatre and Media conversation.
Marketing and Performance are two broad categories in the online space, but experimentation is the key for both. How can you use the tech that's available to you to assemble, augment, or simply get the word out on the theatre project you're envisioning? Click on the image for perspectives from Christy Francis, Joseph Sheridan, Aimee Levesque, David Oliver, and Gaurav Singh Nijjer.
Development is perhaps the core area of the online space, whether that means new play development, pre-production development, or an international forum to discuss ways to overcome challenges in the industry. Click on the image for clips from Michael Fanelli, Joseph Sheridan, Lisa Ludwig, and Austin Lamewona as they riff on this.
