TBTB’s HPI 1: DramaTis UbQtous!
During the week of Monday, November 14th - Saturday, November 19th, 2022, we had our very first Hybrid Playmakers’ Intensive One series or we like to call it; HPI 1: DramaTis UbQtous! This event was a combination of our traditional VPIs series that was created during the COVID-19 Pandemic Lockdown and in-person live theatre performances. The first four performances were performed on Zoom and live-streamed on our YouTube and Facebook pages with live-stream captions. On the final night of this workshop, we had our first in-person live theatre event before the pandemic, and it was live-streamed on our YouTube and Facebook pages with live-stream captions. The performances were comprised of five shorts, and three performances were designed for Zoom and then translated into a stage format. The last two shorts were designed for the stage. You can check out all of the performances from this workshop below, and you can decide whether virtual theatre is a good substitution for regular theatre.
