NT Connections Workshop: Intro to Making Digital Work

What do we mean when we say "digital performance"? Making work with digital equipment? For online? To view on devices? How can we be "live" online? How can relate to an audience we never see? What exciting work has been made, and how can you use your own devices to create?

In this workshop for young people aged 13 - 19, Paula Varjack explores how to approach making work for online audiences, leading you to start to make your own audio based piece for an audience of one. 

Paula Varjack is a theatre-maker, video artist, writer and performer. Her body of work includes performance, film, monologue, installation, and participation. Having begun her practice as a solo artist, her work has become increasingly collaborative, shaped by the artists who inspire and collaborate with her. Born in Washington D.C. to a Ghanaian mother and a British father, she considers East London to be “home”
