Digital R&D

Outline

A practical workshop exploring digital technology and how that might be used inside a production to develop storytelling techniques, prove covid resilient within a digital ensemble and improve access to our work.


Brief

How can digital technology (video, camera, projection and live links / streaming) work within our practise. We will be using Marlowe’s Dr Faustus and Shakespeare's Julius Caesar as practical text.

Designer's response...

Designer Sorcha Corcoran shares with us some of her sketches and notes about how digital technology can be integrated and indeed heavily focus stage design.  

Her treatment here is for Marlowe's Dr Faustus but also explores how digital technology might be explored in other productions.
