Can You Hear Me Now?
Can You Hear Me Now, was a reflection on digital connectivity in partnership with MAYK performed simultaneously in three different countries during November 2017.
Casts of young people in Bristol, Kampala and Kigali communicated via social media before the event and live-streamed during it, expressing what digital connectivity means to them and discussing their similarities and differences. It was created by Caroline Williams in Bristol, working with her counterparts Brian Geza at the Mashirika performing arts group in Kigali, and Muhawenimana Sarafina in Kampala. Can You Hear Me Now was a MAYK production with funding from the British Council.
In this talk, Caroline Williams and Tim Kindberg, who created the live-streaming component, will consider the piece from several perspectives: artistic, cross-cultural, logistical and technical.
This Lunchtime Talk is part of Open Studio Friday, which takes place at the Studio every week.
