Digital Theatre with Stephen Smith – Fundraiser for “Raise the Roof”
Join us for a crash-course in how to be a “Pandemic-Proof” theatre-maker:
During the pandemic, local actor and theatre producer Stephen Smith experimented with a unique style of online storytelling. Using a mobile phone and free livestreaming technology, he created several digital theatre shows, firstly from home and then from empty theatres (including one at the Pump House Theatre). His online shows are a hybrid of one-shot filmmaking and live theatre, winning several Off West End theatre awards and reached audiences worldwide.
In this session, Stephen will show clips from previous online shows and explain how it was all achieved, revealing all the tricks, the lessons learned, and how anyone with a smart phone can do it all themselves.
The workshop will conclude with a full screening of his latest online show ‘Notre Dame’, followed by a Q&A.
