so much discussion of liveness in digital theater and not enough talk of deadness in in-person theater

It was Dostoevsky and Dickens who taught me that the things that tormented me most were the very things that connected me with all the people who were alive, or who ever had been alive. Only if we face these open wounds in ourselves can we understand them in other people.

What a perfect way to start the hybrid #britgrad2021 with @_erinsullivan_ fantastic plenary about celebrating the opportunity to adapt theatre to different forms and exploring how digital performance holds a mirror to our own hybridity.

This research stemmed from pushing back against ideas that online teaching and online performance was a somehow lesser - something this year has shown we're all increasingly aware is not the case, and makes Erin's work even more important

Starting #britgrad2021 with @_erinsullivan_ rejecting this weird binary idea of “real (live) theatre” and “fake (digital) theatre” - if our digital lives are real, why isn’t digital theatre?

Instead of 'commercial, cold, or gimmicky' @_erinsullivan_ asks us instead to think about digital performance as 'convergent, interactive, and hybrid' #BritGrad2021

Among the many important and moving points made in this article about access to arts training, I want highlight this one: “She has seen the Northern Ballet live because they do £12 ‘nosebleeds’ seats, but the rest she has watched on Sky Arts” theguardian.com/technology/2…

There’s nothing quite like an English summer. Except perhaps an English winter. That’s pretty close.
