Making Virtual Theatre - technician & actors
Learn how SF Shakes developed techniques and practices for mounting a virtual production of King Lear for Free Shakespeare at Home, Summer 2020. This webinar touches on ALL the major categories of production, including broadcasting, directing, acting, choreographing, designing, and more. You'll learn about our triumphs and our setbacks. We'll share what worked and what didn't, in hopes of inspiring you to create your own virtual theatre projects. All webinar sessions are interactive and will have plenty of time devoted to your questions.

The next Making Virtual Theater session occurs on January 23 with a session on virtual Stage Management and Production Management. Our guests are SM Karen Schleifer and PM Pratiksha Shah.

If you are interested in using Zoom, Open Broadcasting Software, and a platform like YouTube or Twitch to produce a play, then this webinar series is essential. For King Lear, SF Shakes developed a Unified Virtual Space (UVS) that allowed distanced actors to share the same virtual stage. This webinar series is largely structured around using UVS to create live theatrical performance.
