This City’s Centre 3. Here, Now took place 17 – 21 September 7pm, in the empty 3rd floor offices of St Stephen’s House, in Princesshay shopping centre, Exeter.
A collaboration with Exeter residents who were webcam videographers and performers in the work, this site specific digital performance used specially designed streaming technologies to connect views of city centre streets from five Exeter homes, with the audience in the city centre venue. Local band The Big V accompanied the live action which mixed spoken word, movement and audience interaction ‘to create a genuinely affecting performance event’ (Exeunt).
There was also the opportunity for people to watch and interact with the performance remotely via the LIVE STREAM link on this website.
