PodPlays is a work conceived by Adrienne Wong (Neworld Theatre) and developed in partnership with Martin Kinch and the Playwrights Theatre Centre. It involves a group of artists with different backgrounds commissioned to create a walkabout audio work. PodPlays is a hybrid of technology and performance, mixing together sound, text and performance. Audience members load PodPlays onto portable media players and step outside where the plays become a soundtrack to life on the streets of Vancouver.
What is a PodPlay?
A PodPlay is a site-specific radio play. Audience members listen to the play while walking a specific route in the city. The plays straddle the internal world of the listener and the external community space. The PodPlays combine narrative, geography, history and music.
How does it work?
This PodPlay will be available for download, with further instructions as of July 30. Check the Neworld Theatre site for more details!
