An experimental virtual take on making theatre or virtual storytelling in a mentored and collaborative platform, in the comfort of their own homes during the 21Day National Lockdown.
Borrowing from our most loved 24 Hours in the City format, POPArt is providing a digital platform / holding space for making cute experimental digital stories at a far more relaxed space in our time separate togetherness.
All participating students from institutions around the country are given the platform to either write, direct or act in plays under the mentorship of allocated mentors over the 21 Days of lockdown.
The final product: 6 x 3 - 5 minute story on film that will be broadcast back to back on Facebook Premiere and IGTV LIVE on the last night of lockdown (part 1)!
Join us on Thursday, 16 April at 8pm for the Live Broadcast of radically experimental online storytelling!
