NTLive broadcast live from the Old Vic on August 31st 2017. It will be shown in cinemas internationally from September 21st.
I'm interested to hear how you feel about being in an audience watching a live-streamed piece of theatre rather than being in the actual audience.
Does being in the live-stream audience change the experience?
Do you think had you been in the actual audience it would have added anything?
Did watching the live-stream feel different from seeing it?
I'm very interested in audience experiences.
The text in bold are questions I emailed to a friend who attended the live screening. I asked her to consider these question. She received the email after seeing the performance and her responses were honest, revealing and showed great awareness of her audience experience. There were some plus points and downsides she shared.
I'm writing this blog post hoping to widen my enquiry.
If you saw the live stream of the production please answer in the comments or email me firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to share privately. If you are interested in my research please email also.
