We were working with the full set plan, lights and sounds - developing our use of Qlab for lights, sounds, and video cues, and seeing all 12 Acts laid out for the comfort of our promenading audience, involving them in viewer participation as we had envisaged. We performed 3 shows on one day, with post-performance discussions after each.
The installation/show received a great response from some 30 audience members. There were constructive ideas as well as some heavy discussion about several scenes people were clearly engaged and considered deeply the content and its implications.
Discussion is clearly continuing - One response received via message after the event went:-
"Simply Amazing. I haven't seen raw creativity like that....ever. Wendy was amazing at making the whole experience life like. The way the puppets and characters came alive. Great acting. Sooo cool. Everything looked fantastic, it was very mesmerizing how each Act transitioned into each-other. The sound was great, as well as all the lighting. I really like the set-up and the flow. To me it worked well, it immersed me into it more." Todd Fletcher (Senior Broadcast Technician at CBC Calgary).
