The Experiment

This experimental project is designed to investigate how a theatrical play can be re-imagined within a digital world, to ask different questions of ourselves as artists, our disciplines and, offer possible solutions in a finished, presented work.

In our current reality, there are many attempts to move what is essentially a live, in-person experience, and bring it into the digital sphere. Zoom readings are more and more prevalent, which are rough, lack design elements, and are at the whims of Wi-Fi latency, and equipment. Watching plays that are simply ‘filmed’ can be interesting, but there always seems to be something missing, they feel disconnected, and the production value of the actual filming is severely lacking unless you’re a giant play house. And, in the end, they are just plays that are filmed, nothing re-imagined, the technology is not being maximized or used to create anything new.
