Speaker

Sharon Clark

Sharon is the Creative Director of Raucous, a collaboration of theatre practitioners, writers, filmmakers, composers and creative technologists.

During her fellowship with SWCTN, the theatre-maker Sharon Clark is exploring how she might extend people's experience of a theatre narrative. What do we need to think about when introducing stories to our audience in the privacy of their own home? Or when they are at work? How can we reach out and share stories with audiences that aren't just confined to the theatre spaces? And what are the advances in augmented and mixed reality might help us do this? Is it all just another trick? This talk will share some of that thinking, some of the provocations that arose and look at how anticipation and recall of an event could change the way that theatre writers construct the world and action of their plays.

Please note this talk is at 1pm not 2:45 pm as previously communicated.

This Lunchtime Talk is part of Open Studio Friday, which takes place at the Studio every week.
