How does a hyper-connected community experience art? How can new international technology forge new international collaborations?
LIFT and The Space have commissioned digital theatre pioneers elastic future to make a new international and interactive performance for LIFT 2014 using only widely available technologies.
Harnessing the potential of Google Hangouts as a digital space for performance, Longitude is a new experiment in creating live theatrical experiences, using the networks and social platforms we use every day to create a new performance presented live online over each week of the festival. Working with an international creative team based in countries along a single line of longitude from the UK to the tip of West Africa, elastic future will take you on a journey exploring extreme weather on the north-south oil trade routes.
Longitude is created in collaboration with Hellicar and Lewis.
Commissioned by LIFT, AND Festival and Waterman's for The Space.
Streaming online June 9, 16, and 23 at 6pm BST.
