In tijden van Corona wordt iedereen gedwongen om met nieuwe technologieën te experimenteren. Men streamed en podcast er op los. In deze talk gaan we in gesprek met acteerdocent Tom Radcliffe, die al zijn lessen online geeft en acteur Charlie Macgechan die een creatieve manier vond om het werk van Harold Pinter online te tonen. Samen praten we over de nieuwe ontwikkelingen en wat de artistieke gevolgen van technologische keuzes zijn.
