Hear We Go was a devised piece of theatre created before COVID-19 by MFA theatre students Erin Alys and Connor Graham. During the summer of 2020, the actors were unable to tour the piece at fringe festivals, so they brought on a Director and Cinematographer to adapt it into a short film. Through filming, they continued to develop the story, refine techniques, and learned how to adapt a theatre piece to a 2D medium. Now, with greater understanding of the spread and prevention of COVID-19, they're re-staging a live performance of Hear We Go within masked and socially distanced parameters. Theatre makers are now learning how to edit, design, write and more because they have been forced to work differently than ever before. Erin and Connor hope you enjoy this project however you choose to encounter it; though the Summer 2020 film, live in an audience of small numbers, live streamed through the Hybrid Arts Lab, or all of the above!
Hear We Go is presented in partnership with Hybrid Arts Lab, a multi-venue learning lab that experiments with how art is imagined, made, viewed and understood within physical and digital spaces.
