Open Online Theatre is IJAD’s home for hybrid performance: a virtual venue developing and showcasing new work at the intersections of performing arts and technology. We train artists to deconstruct and rethink their practice to make work specifically for live-streaming, via the art of Sensography, created by IJAD director Joumana Mourad. OOT artists can monetise their process and performances, and gain training in business and social media, as tools for sustainable careers. Audiences can experience creative opportunities via online co-creation with artists, creating a community of artists and audiences, evolving and sustaining the performing arts ecosystem.
