Once It’s Over The Audience Will Cheer
Once It’s Over The Audience Will Cheer is an ambitious interactive performance with a cast of young people from the Arcola Youth Theatre. Exploring the relationship between performer and audience, the production posed questions to the physical audience, plus those watching in two public screenings and online. Aspiring directors had the opportunity to affect the performance in surprising ways via Twitter hashtags. #Exciting.
