Techniques and solutions
Guttersnipe Theatre have undertaken their residency with guest project partner Boyd Branch, utilising his online performance software ‘Virtual Director’, a particularly suitable telepresence solution for Guttersnipe’s unique cabaret style of theatre. "We are working on creating a live performance and know that many peer artists in our network will be very intrigued to see the product that can be achieved with this new software and all the creative solutions it presents." Guttersnipe Theatre.
Reflections and outcomes
Guttersnipe Theatre explore a telepresence staging of the Triple Threat Teen Awards, a parody of TV’s X Factor and Britain's Got Talent. A satirical black comedy that explores the dark absurdity of conspiracy theories, our poor treatment of young talent and the rise of fear culture through the eyes of SHUGA FIXX, a tween pop-band who have become prime targets of the ultimate inner circle. "It's wonderful witnessing your brain adjusting to this new digital sphere and experimenting with what looks interesting and effective." Guttersnipe Theatre.
