On Sunday May 17th, we spent a whole day back at The (digital) Yard for Yard Online. A massive thank you to everyone who joined us – we welcomed over 2000 of you into our virtual building, from over ten different countries, and over 600 of you took part in our live events throughout the day.
“The performances in Yard Online create and hold a space for togetherness – a temporary, fragile web thrumming with connection.” – Exeunt Magazine
In case you missed it: we held an open conversation about the future of theatre, we had a live cookalong in our virtual kitchen, we sang Total Eclipse of the Heart on Zoom with Christopher Green, we danced on Animal Crossing with Eastern Margins, we did a work-out for the apocalypse led by Marikiscrycrycry and we held Stacy Makishi’s hand over the phone.
“Probes at how we watch theatre online, together… tests ways of engaging digitally, in an effort to fill the bubbly pint-sized hole left from the lack of chat, drink and dance that a night out at the Yard normally guarantees.” – The Guardian
