Getting our act together for ctlive1.0

8 Mar

I’m so excited to be working with PANSA again on the CTLive Festival. Last year’s festival was a wild ride, a real testing ground for what might work and what might not. Since then, the SA performing arts industry has claimed a lot of “ground” online, and I’m excited to see what might emerge this year. The first workshop was today, and the number of artists showing a keen interest is very invigorating – such a change from the usual ennui and entitlement that tends to settle over our industry like lethargy dust.

Festival Director Sanjin Muftic – he of Yawazzi and other interesting adventures in technology and art wonderland – is back as well this year, and we’re taking all the best bits of last year and fine tuning them to create something even more fabulous. 100 Stages and You – exposing our artists to the online opportunities, and exposing audiences to our artists online.

Check out the sites for info on the challenges, and follow our activity – Yusrah Bardien and I will be tweeting up a play – just because we can – and there’s a whole lot more to look forward to.
