TR Online programme "Stay at Home, Don’t Leave the Theatre"
At the very beginning of the lockdown in Europe, TR Warszawa launched the Stay at Home, Don’t Leave the Theatre. The programme of streaming of the archival recordings combined with live talks with artists and the set of online workshops for the audience. At the same time the theatre was launching projects dedicated to digital creation, based on the theatrical tools.
R.I.P Kore (dir. Katarzyna Minkowska) was the internet network-performance dedicated to social media platforms (Instagram, Facebook, Youtube), where actors created their super-realistic accounts of the characters who were meeting on regular streams from time to time. It was a prequel to the performance that premiered in October 2020.
Together with Katarzyna Kalwat, the director and the team of her collaborators, in co-production with Volksbuehne Berlin, TR Warszawa invited the audience to the participatory collective performance on Zoom, called “Maria Klassenberg. Home Choreographies”.
The success of the online programming led the theatre to build the online strategy for the Theatre, artistic practice and audience development, in an effort to create conditions for the long-term development, production, and reception of valuable performances online, including the live-stream platform to be launched in November with the world premiere of “2020: The Tempest” by Grzegorz Jarzyna.
