Palomar College Pioneers of CyberTheatre. On Zoom May 15 & 16
Theatre makers all over the world are reinventing live theatre for the Zoom format. Not to be daunted by the seismic upheaval of this brave new world, Palomar Theatre Arts students have been working to bring you two original works for this unique moment. 
The collaboration began by asking, “what does our community need right now, that only live theatre can offer?” We all agreed that people want to be connected, uplifted and entertained in a way that will also add perspective to the uncertainties we all are experiencing. 
Haunted in Quarantine
Our first collaborative brainstorming yielded a “fun” idea. What would it be like for an online support group of people who believe their homes are haunted, to suddenly be sheltered at home, 24/7 with their haunting spirits? Haunted in Quarantine follows the Zoom meetings of this group over several weeks as the natural and supernatural worlds collide in response to heightened dimensions and reverberations of these turbulent conditions. Although influenced by recent generations’ love for the horror genre – this is not horror. People have enough fear right now. We set out for a fun event and have discovered so much more in the haunting metaphors.
This Tiny House
We have also been collecting stories from you, our community, about the immediate impacts of Covid-19. Theatre has the capacity to remind us that we are not alone. So we are mining your stories for the common threads, themes and through-lines that may help us to make some sense out of all this. In the tradition of the Greek Chorus, which always represents the greater community in Greek theatre, we are crafting the source material you have provided into a poetic expression of language, rhythm and gesture. This Tiny House will explore and expand the expressive boundaries of the Zoom container, reimagining the theatre, just as all of us are called upon to reimagine the possibilities of our world during and after the pandemic. It’s not too late to add your story. Click on this link to open the collector
