Wire #6: Programming Performance, Post-Pandemic
Wed 20 May 2020 - 2:00pm (AEST)
We don’t yet know when the doors to venues will re-open, but presenters are thinking about what and how to program when eventually COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.
For works in development or imminent delivery in 2020 which have been subject to postponement or cancellation, is it as simple as deferring them to 2021? Will they even be relevant next year, to either artists or audiences? Will there be an appetite for stories about the global upheaval we’ve experienced together; or for escapism and uplifting distraction?
Hosted by Zohar Spatz (La Boite Theatre Company, Australia), with panellists Kristy Edmunds (UCLA’s Center for the Art of Performance, USA), Wesley Enoch (Sydney Festival, Australia), and Yvonne Tham (Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay, Singapore).
This APAM Wire conversation aims to combine perspective formed through lived experience with imagination, critical thinking and foresight for the future.
This session will be live captioned.
