Panelists have been announced for L.A. Theatre Goes Digital: Creating Online, this Thursday, May 7, at 3 pm PT. The second in Center Theatre Group’s bi-weekly discussion series L.A. Theatre Speaks, the talk will feature local artistic directors.
There have been a surprising number of bright spots for theatre lovers these past few weeks, from star-studded digital celebrations and hilarious viral videos to live-streamed performances and new commissioned works from some of our favorite playwrights. Many theatre companies have created new initiatives and programs from scratch in what feels like days; some have seen existing online projects become vital to realizing their missions. How are Los Angeles theatres moving their work to the digital space, and where do we fit into the national and international landscape? Will any of these experiments change how we create once live theatre is up and running again?
Part of the Art Goes On Project, the Second Talk in the L.A. Theatre Speaks Series features representatives from local theatres including Deaf West Theatre, Fountain Theatre, Geffen Playhouse, IAMA Theatre Company and The Industry with outside innovators from Oregon Shakespeare Festival and situation.
All discussions will begin at 3 pm PT and include a question and answer session – audience members who wish to participate must register in advance at CTGLA.org/LATheatreSpeaks. The discussions will also be live-streamed and archived at Facebook.com/CTGLA. For more information, please visit CTGLA.org/LATheatreSpeaks.
