Can You Hear Me Now?
Can You Hear Me Now was an intercultural live performance performed in Bristol (UK), Kampala (Uganda) and Kigali (Rwanda) simultaneously.
Can you imagine if Theresa May had denied Britain access to Facebook, Twitter and WhatsApp during the recent election? What would Bristol feel like if only 19% of its residents had access to the internet? A Ugandan teenager can tell you exactly how that feels.
Using digital technology to link remote performance spaces, teenage casts in Bristol, Kampala and Kigali work together to explore their relationship to digital technology. With the help of fibre-optics they attempt to meet and dance between continents.
