“Like Tom Cruise Loves Running” is an experimental collaboration between Dancing Monkey Laboratories, unit2 studios and Tim Nguyen Co. This project is designed to investigate how a theatrical play, and the performers within it, can be re-imagined within a digital world, to ask different questions of ourselves as artists, our disciplines and, offer possible solutions in a finished, presented work.
In our current reality, there are many attempts to move what is essentially a live, in-person experience, and bring it into the digital sphere. Watching plays that are simply ‘filmed’ can be interesting, but there always seems to be something missing, they feel disconnected, and the production value of the actual filming is severely lacking unless you’re a giant play house. And, in the end, they are just plays that are filmed, nothing re-imagined, the technology is not being maximized or used to create anything new.
This will be a one-Act 30min experiment to discover some answers.
Subjects: Val Duncan, Donna Ng and Trevor Loman.
Scientists: Mike Czuba, Tim Nguyen and Wil Knoll.
The LIVE observation sessions will be streamed on-line on the following dates:
