“Last year we took on the challenge of using Zoom for our production of Shakespeare’s classic ‘As You Like it’. We were uncertain, would it work? What did we need to make it work? Could the text be adapted and still coherently tell the stories in the play? How will the audience respond to two separate episodes?
We got answers to these questions and compliments and texted applause via chat and email from the zoom audience, in abundance. ‘High production values’, ‘an artistic triumph’ and wonderful performances, from the actors, each at their zoom location.
So can we do it again? What can we add this time? Once again, we aim to utilise the compromise that zoom imposes and see if we can push the production and performances even further.
The opportunity to work with talented actors and stage and technical design, has been a blessing to all involved. Our aim is to bring together again the audience that brings its openness and imagination to make community with us, all together, so that we all bear witness, that the show does, once again go on. ”
