CdnStudio is an online ‘room’ that uses internet technology to bring collaborators from across Canada together. This digital tool takes separate video streams and blends them together in real time, allowing users to see and hear each other in the same digital ‘space’. This technology effectively removes one of the core requirements of theatre: that audience and performer must be present physically with each other. What does this mean for performance?
In a collaboration that spans 350 kilometres, Joseph Osawabine, Kevin Matthew Wong, and illustrator Mirka Loiselle, with the support of Debajehmujig Creation Centre, will present the beginning of a storytelling-based work created in SpiderWebShow’s digital live performance tool CdnStudio. The short presentation will reveal work created by the artists that morning and concludes with a discussion of the work and the tools were used to make it.
Presented in partnership with SpiderWebShow.
These studio showings are part of the SummerWorks Lab - a place for exploration, experimentation, and process, allowing us to support work in early stages and create connections between audiences and artists.
