Season 3: “Exploration”
Reinvention, Reconnection, Reimagining: Conversations Exploring Theatre, Digital Technology and Live Performance
Thanks for listening to The Gathering, a podcast for artists and creatives from Arts Lancashire.
This season is all about exploration, and features conversations led by Lancashire based artists discussing themes and ideas that are important to their practice and the future of their work.
In this episode, Lancaster-based theatre company imitating the dog explores the ways in which the sector and its practitioners, creatives and freelance artists, have responded to the pandemic, by reinventing ways of collaborating, reimagining methodologies and processes of making work, and reconnecting with audiences, our communities and our networks, both here in the UK and internationally.
Comprising three conversations, this episode attempts to unpack what we mean by ‘digital performance’, what we want and need from the live encounter, questions around access, how audiences are responding to what theatre companies are currently offering online, and what we’ll be taking with us from the last 14 months or so.
