Etheatre Project and Collaborators (2014)

A devised, collaborative, site-specific cyberformance about migration, immigration and emigration. 

For the last Etheatre Project, Etheatre Project and Collaborators, I collaborated remotely with international artists and cyberformance experts to stage a cyberformance on UpStage for the platform’s 10th birthday celebrations on 9 January 2014. Using the topic of internal European migration as a starting point—the topic opened up the notion of migration in general as the collaborators were based across the world—and the new features of UpStage v3 (streaming, avatar drawing and applause button), this third project was a devised, collaborative, site-specific performance open to audience participation and interaction.
