    11. Audiences • Performers can see each other on their computers • People sit in studio and watch via projection

    12. Activities in workshop Discussions of concepts • Online chat Structured improvisations • Creating a virtual face and body • Follow the leader Rehearsed performance pieces

    13. Structured improvisations

    14. Rehearsed performance piece

    15. Blast Theory workshop

    16. Blast Theory • Theatre group incorporating new technology in their work. • Merging audience and performers • Rationale: to make work accessible, to engage with changes in society, to reposition theatre as innovative and exciting

    17. Warwick workshop At Warwick students developed pieces using • Walkie talkies • Chat rooms • Displayed on screen via data projector

    18. Physical Performance workshop

    19. Videoconferenced physical performance • Took place Friday, 8th March, 2002 • Canterbury and Exeter • Eastern physical performance • Performers in one half of studio • Wall-length screen hung in centre • Other half of group projected on screen

    20. Why did it fail as a workshop? • delays in setting up • low frame rates • image freezing and speeding up • time lags

    21. Why did it fail as a workshop? • Inappropriateness of subject matter • Selection of activities • difficulties with communication • difficulties with performance space • sightlines • inappropriate expectations

    22. Solutions • Include students and staff more in the explorative aspect of the project • Use the link to demonstrate work rather than work across the link • Make technology part of what is being explored

    23. Telematic Performance at DMU

    24. Differences with Warwick • Students based at home for 2nd and 4th session • Dial-up modems created additional difficulties • Performance and connection from own space created different ‘feel’

    25. Where next? • ANNIE project finished March 2003 • Dissemination activities continue • Possibility of transferability funding to pursue further work

    26. Potential transferability activities
