Artistic Collaborations via Skype: Turning Distance into Drama

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Skype and other video conferencing tools now enable distance to become an asset (and a sexy marketing tool) rather than a deal-breaker in collaborations between artists on the other side of the world. Austin company "The Hidden Room" and London company "Look Left Look Right" are working on a cutting edge theatre project together via Skype: "You Wouldn't Know Her, She Lives in London / You Wouldn't Know Him, He Lives in Texas." Together they are finding inspiration and a solid new work model. International rehearsal demonstration included!
