Increasingly, theatre practitioners (performers, dramaturgs, directors, designers, scholars, writers, and producers, etc.) are asked to participate in online, web-based livestream auditions, job interviews and present creative ideas to festival programmers or performance venues. They are expected to efficiently present themselves and their ideas through livestream media. Our innovative course explores both critical discourses but also practices of live stream performance, internet theatre documentation and job interview situations. Students will be building and practicing professional, creative and critical analytical skills, when conceptualizing and performing livestream tasks. This includes critical writing, technical skills in terms of setup, the use of equipment (sound, light, camera, post-production), digital post-production and representation strategies/performance.
