Please Switch on Your Mobile Phones – TaikaBox

The project aims to create new digital tools that can be integrated into the creation of a new production model that breaks out of the time/place-limited audience of a standard theatrical performance. Using mobile platforms, the project aims to connect with two types of audience; i) to engage more deeply with the audience in the venue ii) simultaneously involve a global audience, expanding the geographic and temporal limits of theatrical performance, and creating a way for audiences to feel more connected with a dance performance.
