During 2022 Raucous worked on Bristol+Bath Creative R&D’s Here+There programme exploring how we might collaborate internationally with Toronto based company Lost & Gone to consider a synchronised performance that spans an ocean and a five hour time difference.
With international touring becoming prohibitively expensive and flying resources and people round the globe contributing to climate catastrophe is there a way we can construct new processes that allow for remote collaborative co-creation? Furthermore, can we build a production where audiences feel as if they are occupying the same physical space at the same time? How could we reinterpret notions of liveness? And if we do, is that ‘cheating’?
In this lunchtime talk the Raucous and Lost & Gone teams will discuss the ideas they tested (and are still testing) with The Lantern Room. We will share what these periods of exploration helped us discover and how those discoveries will influence the work as we move forward in our partnership.
SPOILER ALERT - But as always there are more questions than answers...
Join us online on YouTube Live, or in the building on Friday 14th July 2023 at 1pm for the talk and to take part in the Q and A discussion afterwards.
