Pilot Theatre are have announced that there will be a webcast stream of their critically acclaimed, sold–out collaborative production with Slung Low and York Theatre Royal, Blood + Chocolate on Thursday 17th October from 6.30pm.
The exciting large scale professional and community promenade production explores the inspiring stories of the workers and owners of York’s chocolate factories during the First World War alongside those of the young men involved in the terrible conflict.
Pilot Theatre’s Digital Producer Mark Beasley said, “Although we can’t replicate the whole live experience, we hope to capture the magic that audiences have witnessed on the street of York onto the small screen.
For the people who have seen it already they will get a chance to see the show from another perspective and the people who didn’t manage to get tickets will be able to get a sense of the enormity of the production.
Finally to get a closer experience to the real thing, we suggest you listen to the stream whilst wearing headphones – and then you can also discover the true spirit of Blood + Chocolate “
Pilot have been streaming their work since 2008. Their work on innovation has been developed through their annual Shift Happens conference which has led to new ways of working with digital media in the arts. Last year the company successfully webcast the 2012 York Mystery Plays as part of thespace.org project.
