WeLog
An exploration of identity through live-streamed theatre
13 February 2017 - 3 April 2017

WeLog is a project created by Lovisa Perman, Robin N Spegel and Annelie Horáková Eriksson. It explores how to make performing arts available for an audience through both a physical experience and an online-experience at the same time. Our performance explores the theme of identity through different perspectives, packaged in three episodes, 30 minutes long each. The episodes are live edited and live streamed to youtube in the form of v-logs (video blogs).

Our attempt is to create something that can be watched by a live audience and an online audience, without any loss in quality and experience. We wanted to do this project because we believe that theatre and the performing arts has to be made more available to people, without compromising artistic quality. To make a performance which is made with the purpose of being watched from a screen (be it computer, smartphone or pad), we believe is the key to begin a new era of great performance arts. Our ambition is to make thematically narrow vlogs of high artistic quality which at the same time are made available for a broad audience.

By live streaming the performance we hope to preserve the very essence of performing arts – the feeling of being here and now. Even if you are watching from wherever in the world on your screen, you are a part of something happening right now. Something we feel is missing from movies, youtube-channels or documentations of live performances – they are already cut and packaged when the audience or the viewer presses play.
