Creatives across the theatre industry are finding new ways of creating theatre in the wake of COVID-19. 

Filming, live-streaming, using animation or creating audio-plays – going digital has been for many companies the only way to continue connecting to audiences over the past year. 

Join Jess Williams and Jonnie Riordan, co-directors of theatre company ThickSkin’s latest show PETRICHOR, via Zoom from 7pm on Mon 30 November as they talk to us about directing for virtual reality, and how to stay adaptive as a theatre-maker.

About PETRICHOR: Step into a new world. A world where every single day, is exactly the same. PETRICHOR is a dystopian reality, where every moment is muted, managed and monochrome. Nothing bad ever happens. Nothing good does either. Excitement and happiness have been traded for a world without pain and suffering. A chance meeting brings two unlikely individuals together and offers a small glimpse of what life could be. Their newfound connection sends ripples through this ordered world. They begin to question every decision, every step and every thought they’ve ever had. Could there be something more than this? Find out more here.
