Abstract / Summary

The article is a write-up of an experiment comparing the reactions to films of theatre performance captured using traditional methods with those including point of view and stage object mounted cameras. The motivation was to extend the theatre experience to on-line viewing by making the experience feel more in the moment, keeping the physicality of theatre in the film format. The films were viewed in cinemas, and in homes and compared with the live performance. An original performance was devised and performed in front of a theatre audience and two 30 min film versions were created. The project was a collaboration between Bristol Old Vic, Watershed and Hewlett-Packard and part funded by the Technology Strategy Board. It was a carried out by a multi-disciplinary team of performers, technologists, producers and psychologists as a result of our wok on extending experience of place and telepresence. Either of the 30 min films of the performance are available on request.
