Media is any form of research output that is recorded and played. This is most commonly video, but can be audio or 3D representations.
An online play written and directed specifically for an online audience.
This is the recording of a live streamed theatre production developed from fieldwork as part of a PhD.
This piece is a creative/imaginative anthropological analysis of the fieldwork experience with an ensemble of actors over a 12 month development process conducted throughout 2018.
It is a hybrid of theatre, film and online performances and audiences.
A play about a group of friends who live stream a weekly show together. Suburban mum, JENNA (Nikki Allen), is re-inventing her life online by streaming a weekly show about good friends, good food and good conversation. Together with her co-hosts SAMANTHA DEEN (Jasmin McWatters) and LACHY (Max Kowalick) they have forged a unique bond and have each shared in the personal and financial benefits of redefining themselves using social media personalities. But they each discover that who they are is a complex web in a life lived online.
