CREATING AND PERFORMING IN THE VIRTUAL SPACE – ARTISTIC AND TECHNICAL INSIGHTS FOR MOVING THE PERFORMING ARTS ONLINE
August 19, 2020 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pmFree
This virtual panel is a space to help theater educators (and others in the performing arts) think artistically, technically, imaginatively, and practically about how to create performance online, whether in the context of a course or in re-imagining what productions might look like in times of distance learning.
Each of the panelists will speak about and share brief examples of the work that they’ve done since the onset of distance learning last spring. This will include some nuts and bolts instruction for using platforms such as Zoom, YouTube Premiere, and Acapella, as well as the discoveries the panelists have made during this time, and challenges they’ve encountered.
The goal for this workshop is to help arts educators enter the upcoming year with new tools in their toolbox and ideas for how they might begin to shape their curriculum and productions.
