the photographs above show the heads of PROMPTER’s ‘online chorus’ (Tariro Mavondo and Dickie Beau) upon the bodies of the onstage performers. What was particularly great was that, by using teleprompters, the audience could watch the point of view of the telepresent characters (because the camera shoots through the mirrored face of the mediated performer).

PROMPTER is underway at the Arts House Meat Market, North Melbourne. There’s been much media interest, including a feature by ABC Arts Online you can watch below. There’s been a string of great reviews including this one here, and perhaps our most gratifying quote is, ‘Brecht would have been proud of the emotional distancing and invitation to thoughtful engagement delivered to the audience’ by critic Ruth Richter.

The epic journey of creating a large-scale performance work with 5 onstage performers and 5 online synched through pretty elaborate technical infrastructure, and exploring some very big thematics that converge in the shitstorm of mediation is nearing its final chapter. Here is an image featuring Brendan Ewing, Jule Japhet Chiari, Deborah Robertson, Sete Tele, Marcela Fuentes, Dickie Beau, Michelle Robin Anderson, Murray Dowsett and Allison Wyper.
