Live Theatre Broadcast

Entrance of Theatre, Film & TV department at York UniversityI was pleased to be invited up to York Uni this week, to speak at the Live Theatre Broadcast Symposium.

My talk “Seeding The cloud: Broadcast Entities and Digital Storytelling” draws some observations about the recently commissioned digital performance hybrids in the UPstream programme which I developed as a strand within SHPLive.TV, supported by greenhouse.

I’ll probably use this as material to work into my next blog article for Create Hub.

Here’s the video from the Live Theatre Broadcast day, which features Marcus Romer (Artistic Director, Pilot Theatre), Ross MacGibbon (Royal Opera House Cinema Screen Director), John Wyver (Director, Illuminations Media) and myself from the culture sector.

Connected Theatre for Box Set Viewers

I just wrote a blog article which has just been published over at Create Hub, the news site which covers the use of technology in the art, creative and cultural industries.

Online audiences like to control their experiences. They enjoy short spurts of play and lots of interaction. So, how do you bring the experiences of watching and listening to cultural performances to the online world?

Catching the same wave that saw the Nesta funded pilot of NT Live in 2010, I shaped an idea to develop an agile, creative project which recasts arts organisations as multi-platform cultural broadcasters.
This programme focuses on live streaming video to not only reach new audiences but to explore new possibilities for performance that makes use of the real time, interactive nature of the internet.
