Art in the 2 Minute Era or: How I Learned to Make Art and Hate the Bomb

Today the doomsday clock was set to 2 minutes till midnight. Was the clock not already at 11:58? Has it not been at 11:58 for as long as I have been alive? It seems to me that I have been living in the dusk of two minutes to midnight for years now. It seems to me […]

The Big Merge: Internet and Theatre

Some will reject it all together, some will half-ass-idly try to incorporate it, many will fail, but sometimes and someday we will find a way, the way to merge the internet, social media and our smartphones with the staged theatre. An article on HowlRound explored different possibilities and […]
