The New "Normal" photos from Joe Rosser
Oct 16 2020
We did it! Live art is still possible! Our documentary photographer, Joe Rosser captured the evening to give you a taste of how it felt to be in the Wardrobe Theatre during our first ever hybrid online / real life show, The New "Normal".
As you'll see in the pictures, there were 3 of us performing in The Wardrobe Theatre, with a tiny live audience and 3 of us performing at in their own homes, projected onto the wall of The Wardrobe. The whole show was beamed out to living rooms across the world, via Zoom.
Massive thanks to all of you who came to watch in your homes or in the theatre. We'd love to hear how it was for you, if you could take a moment to fill out this feedback form, we'd be delighted.
One online audience member said: "You've clearly embraced the "new normal" of doing theatre and made it seem like you've been doing it for ages." Thanks audience member - we had a lot of support! Scroll down for the full credits at the bottom of this blog.
If you'd like to get a flavour of the themes we were exploring, check out this poem, written during the show by our Poet In Residence, Bee Golding.
Huge thanks to The Wardrobe Theatre for supporting us to explore the possibilities on online / real life theatre, with an extra large dollop of thanks to Chris Collier for the beautiful playful lighting and helping us figure out the ridiculously complex sound issues. Enormous gratitude to Wilbee Films for filming us and dealing with the live stream, three cheers to Alan at MyClearText for providing the incredible closed captioning, a big whoop to Joe Rosser Photography for the documentary photography and Bee Golding for the poetry. Thanks to all those who have been supporting our Fools, so that they could do this crazy thing.
We'll be releasing some of the footage from the night so that those who couldn't make it can get a taste of the evening. Watch this space...
