The Ups, Downs, Ins, and Outs of Creating Remote Performances with Jared Mezzocchi


  • In case you missed the live broadcast:

    You can watch the replay of my conversation with Isadora super-user Jared Mezzocchi about the ups, downs, ins, and outs of creating remote performances? In this hour-long conversation, we spoke about practical techniques and theoretical notions, focusing especially on Jared's recent production "Russian Troll Farm" which was named as one of the best theater pieces of 2020 by the New York Times. We'll be taking your questions in the chat.

    Enjoy!

    "Reverse-Engineering Zoom with Isadora

    Site-Specific Performance for the Internet

    04 January 2021

    Jared Mezzocchi has been systematically exploring what Zoom and the editing program Isadora can offer theatre practitioners during the pandemic. He has been working in the field for over a decade and has explored it from multiple points of view—designer, director, playwright, artistic director. As a theatre educator, he launched an MFA program at University of Maryland in projection design, and he recently designed and co-directed Russian Troll Farm, the highly acclaimed Zoom theatre production. We Zoomed in November to talk about the production, how to reverse-engineer Zoom, Isadora as the way forward, and more."
