Adapting For Online- Creating Digital Theatre
This practical workshop explores how to create digital theatre and view the constraints of the digital medium as a creative springboard rather than as a lesser art form compared to in-person theatre. As restrictions ease, what can we keep from what we have learned about making theatre digitally, what can digital theatre give us moving forward?
Using different exercises we’ll cover:
-Creating digital pieces via phones, video chat and audio recordings.
-How to keep and direct an audience’s attention when not in the same physical space
-How to use the audience’s own home/ location as part of your artistic ‘set' - even when apart.
The workshop culminates in everyone creating their own short digital pieces.
Available online (over zoom). Runtime: 2.5 hours.
Playing with Choice- Creating Interactive Theatre
This practical workshop explores how we create interactive theatre that gives audiences genuine choice and agency. Using different exercises we’ll cover:
-How to ease an audience into interaction and inspire them to play.
-How to create choices that have real consequences
-Creating ‘rich' interaction not ‘poor' interaction
-How to respond to different audience dynamics (including how to deal with audiences who try and ‘break the game’)
The workshop culminates in everyone creating their own short interactive pieces.
Available online (over zoom) and in-person (when safe to do so).
Runtime: 2.5 hours. (Can be extended to be a full day workshop if desired).
