LIVE PERFORMANCE GOES DIGITAL
A FREE WORKSHOP FUNDED BY SCREENSKILLS & ARTS COUNCIL ENGLAND AT UGLY DUCK
Workshop runs from 10am on Mon 10th Oct until 2pm on Tues 11th Oct 2022 in Bermondsey, London
Deadline for applications: 5pm Wed 5th Oct 2022
Following our highly-successful pilot Live Performance Goes Digital workshops at the Royal Shakespeare Company in March and September of this year, Liminal is once again joining forces with ScreenSkills to share understanding with regional theatres, touring companies and independent freelance artists and technicians of how to capture live performance for the screen.
Commissioned by ScreenSkills using public funding from Arts Council England, 'Live performance goes digital' will give regional producing theatres, small touring companies and independent producers, directors and production/technical/stage managers an insight into the processes and practical considerations of capturing theatre on screen.
The workshop will be delivered over a day and a half by experts from award-winning video production company Eight Engines and other key players in the digital capture landscape. It will be hosted by multi-arts venue Ugly Duck on Tanner Street in Bermondsey and facilitated by Liminal.
The introductory workshop will give participants hands-on access to equipment and experts, along with the chance to observe a live stream in progress: a live pre-screening discussion about Liminal Stage's upcoming stage-and-screen experiment, GREY MAN, and a post-screening mindfulness workshop led by Wellness Practitioner Kate Delaney.
Who it's for
The opportunity is open to directors, producers, stage managers and other live performance professionals with at least three years’ professional experience who wish to expand their knowledge of the options available for the digital capture of live performances. ScreenSkills particularly welcomes applications from the Midlands.
