We miss seeing our audiences and our community casts. There is nothing like that moment before a show starts: all that work by the cast, the crew and the community, poised for an inspirational performance.
Although that is not possible at the moment, we've been busy creating a new way to reconnect with our audiences and casts.
Southpaw Digital is a new way to experience Augmented Reality Dance & Theatre. And we need your help to bring it to life!
“To watch you dance was to hear our local community hearts speak”, said an audience member attending Erimus, which we created for the people of Middlesbrough. We live to hear these words, creating spectacular dance in the heart of communities.
But now we need to do this differently.
You can already see our free app and watch or participate in content; you can place characters from Southpaw's productions, such as Speakeasy, RUSH, RISE, and others. You can find a gallery of Southpaw promotional material you can print at home or order online. Or you can join our mass casts in learning choreography that has featured in productions past and present in our Southpaw tutorials.
Now we want to unlock your city with our 3D GPS Scavenger Trail!
We've just started on this digital adventure - your contribution will help us create more digital stories, more performances, more inspiration. And there's some amazing rewards, including the chance to be immortalised!
Thank you to Arts Council England and GX for their support, without which this app would not exist at all.
