Theatre and social media always seem to be at odds with one another. Before every show you are told to turn off your cell phones, remove yourself from the real world and separate from technology. Blue Light Festival is a challenge to the traditions of theatre that merges the online with the off. A daring experiment in undermining the definition of theatre that takes on-stage practices to an online world.
The Blue Light Festival is an online performance festival experienced through the mediums of Instagram, Facebook, Snapchat and beyond. The festival will feature eight pieces nine performed using a social media platform online.
The Blue Light Breakfast Series: Throughout the festival, Griffin Cork and Karen Johnson-Diamond are hosting “The Bluelight Breakfast Series” – They will be having breakfast with all the awesome artists involved in this festival and recording the interviews!
