ONLINE THEATRE PARTIES
During the pandemic, like everyone, we had to find ways to adapt so that we could continue to work with our community partners. We wanted to find a way to replicate the collective experience of coming to watch a live theatre production.
Our first three projects after lockdown were ‘Listen Up’ (a series of short audio plays), ‘Listen In’ (a trio of audio plays accompanied with some visuals) and Aware (a trio of short films). We decided to host online theatre parties for a handful of community organisations to engage with the plays as part of this programme.
Over the course of 4 months, we delivered 35 online theatre parties with 6 community organisations.
Our parties have been so popular that we are looking to include an online offer to community organisations in future for those who are unable to come along in person.
