Timewave - A Technological Theatrical Evolution?

Published by: Cameron Lowe on 16th May 2013 | View all blogs by Cameron Lowe

TimeWave (timewavefestival.com) is a new international festival that explores the fusion of theatre and technology.

 

TimewaveTheater allowed you to imagine scenes anywhere in the world; film allowed you to see scenes anywhere in the world; Timewave allows for scenes to occur anywhere in the world and for audiences to connect to those places. By using telepresence and broadcasting technologies, theatre from remote locales will be streamed into London, enabling audiences to travel around the world but never leave their seats.

 

"I am really looking forward to being a part of the TimeWave festival - I believe that all the artists involved aspire to set the bar higher for new writing and that the results will be at the cutting edge of storytelling and performance." Neil LaBute

 

Produced by LoNyLa (lonyla.com), a global artists’ network fueled by graduates of Yale University, in partnership with Innovation Warehouse (theiw.org), a leading British accelerator for digital startups, and the Stella Adler Studio for Acting (stellaadler.com) in New York City, TimeWave gathers audiences to experience a performance that is simultaneously theatrical, cinematic, and Internet-driven, and where audiences can contribute via social media.

TimeWave gathers over 75 artists from 10 nations, including the United Kingdom, United States, Russia, Ireland, Australia, Singapore, Spain, Nigeria, Romania and Italy. New work will be streamed in to the festival from New York City, Los Angeles, Madrid, Barcelona, Bucharest, Milan and Singapore.

 

Highlights of the festival include opening night performances of new work by Neil LaBute, Gary Duggan and Jonathan Lewis followed by a cocktail reception for artists and audiences, an improvised black comedy in which Los Angeles and London artists discover the “Voice of Revolution” during the 2011 London riots, new plays by Paul Charlton, Maksym Kurochkin, Zainabu Jallo, Alexandra Gersten-Vassillaros and Lachlan Philpott, and a Saturday night soiree.

 

TimeWave is supported by Walt Disney Imagineering, Hathersage Capital Management, Telestream, Vidyo and Yelp.

 

Special Early Bird Tickets are available in May Only (£8).  Otherwise, single tickets are £10 and a Festival Pass is available for £35.
