Starting on 7 March, we’re producing the stream for “Don’t Hate The Rich – Become One Of Them” at Camden People’s Theatre, when our UPstream supported project debuts as a live show at the Sprint Festival.
On Saturday 14 March, we head over to the Story Museum, Oxford to stream contemporary music festival, Audiograft 2015. The mixed international bill on the night features performances by Maria Chavez, Lucio Capece, Sally Golding and Minoru Sato.
Read more on the Audiograft site and of course, if you can’t get over to Oxford for the night – see it here.
Later in March, we’re live streaming Junctures, an international cultural exchange between UK and Iran from Cambridge Junction. Building on long-standing links and contemporary collaborations, the British Council’s UK-Iran Season of Culture will strengthen opportunities for greater cultural engagement, improve mutual understanding and increase trust. We’ll be streaming discussion panels, fast paced “Peachy Coochy” presentations and a live Skype hook up between artists in Cambridge and Tehran.
April sees the final seed-funded project in our UPstream programme take flight. Supported with funds from SHPLive and greenhouse, Pursued By A Bear, present an in-progress sharing of “The Lamellar Project”, their transatlantic, transmedia eco-drama. The project sees casts in the UK and USA collaborating live online to tell the tale of futuristic mega-corporations exploiting ecology in a battle for global control.
We’re streaming the results of the R’n’D phase of this project right here on Friday 24 April.
Early May, we’re hosting an experiment to find out if the NTLive and Royal Opera House performances that have been delivered to cinema’s around the world have created an audience for cinema theatre experiences that originate closer to home. Canadian performers visit a rural village hall to stage “Miss Caledonia“, and we live stream the production right into the cinema at South Hill Park on Weds 6 May.
