Created in May 2020, ATC On Stage|On Screen is our online initiative to deliver bespoke projects created especially for online platforms.
Chekhov's The Seagull
Chekhov’s The Seagull, a new online version by Eli Kent and Eleanor Bishop, directed by Eleanor Bishop brings a landmark piece of theatre to the 21st century. Delivered in 30 minute instalments over four weeks in May 2020, this production was rehearsed, performed and broadcast all in the online space. The actors had just one week per episode to read the script, learn their lines and rehearse, ready to broadcast on Friday of that week. Chekhov's famous characters are reimagined with a Kiwi twist and congregate over Zoom. In a direct commentary of our world in lockdown, the characters are still searching for meaning in their lives while battling love, jealousy, dissatisfaction, dreams, hopes and plans - not to mention malfunctioning video calls!
The Master Builder
ATC On Stage|On Screen presents one of Ibsen’s most fascinating and enigmatic works in a new hybrid of theatre and film. In this high quality studio adaptation of The Master Builder, a successful builder and property developer has his creative flame reignited by a young woman from his past, with dramatic consequences. Ibsen specialist and ATC Artistic Director Colin McColl presents a magnificent work from a master playwright, in an innovative post-COVID-19 format. Premiered online Saturday 8 August, 7:30pm and was available to view for free until Sun 30 August 2020.More Info
