In Session 2, we focused on networks in #cultural and #creative industries: Building on the relations between UK #theatre workers, @ManfredideBern1 from @KingsCollegeLon showed the process of #CoProduction of #networks in space and time. (1/4)
Dominic Power analysed rural #female #artists’ work and #creativity in #Sweden. He found out that being in the #periphery does not automatically mean #isolation from the center or lesser #creative possibilities: Their networks go far beyond a classic #CorePeriphery model. (2/4)
Alice Bobée elaborated on the entanglement between #BusinessSchools’ cultural economic #geography and cities’ reputation: Facing reduced public #funding, #French business schools have set up campus in European cities, dissociationg themselves from their #national origins. (3/4)

For over 400 years, history has been haunted by Anarkali, the beautiful court dancer who was buried alive by Emperor Akbar, for her love affair with Prince Salim (Akbar’s son and the future Emperor Jahangir). But is the story fact or #fiction? The truth will surprise you! 1/11 Image
This tragic love story has many modern retellings, including the 1960s classic Hindi film Mughal-e-Azam. But if Anarkali is just #folklore, whose grave lies in the magnificent ‘Tomb of Anarkali’ in the heart of #Lahore, the former Mughal capital? 2/11 Image
The grave bears the couplet in #Persian: ‘Ah! If I could behold the face of my beloved once more, I would thank God until the day of resurrection’. It is signed by ‘Majnun Salim Akbar’ ('Enamoured Son of Akbar'). It’s the only clue we have. 3/11

Recap thread of my @Official_GDC talk yesterday, “Up Close & Virtual: The Power of Live VR Actors” for anyone interested in #MetaHumans #VR #Theatre #LiveEvents #SocialVR #CloudXR #CloudGaming. It will also be available in the GDC vault soon. Image
I started w/ my 2008 London story about how watching the best performers in the world from the front row had a profound effect on me. It’s different from a film close-up or from sitting in the back seats. You can hear some of the story in my #GTC21 talk:…
Then I did a speed run of my work in #XR for designing real theaters before jumping right into showing Christmas Carol.

I enumerated 3 things that made this show possible:

1. Cloud computing (thanks @nvidia)

2. MetaHumans (thanks Epic)

3. Live Link Face (thanks Epic again) Image

The Jewish cemetery of #Salonica was once the largest Jewish cemetery in Europe, with over 350,000 graves. Its destruction began with the Hellenising policies of interwar Greece and concluded in 1942 during the Nazi occupation of the city. #Thread
Whereas the Jewish cemetery was destroyed and incorporated as part of the Aristotle University, #Salonica’s Dönme cemetery became a football field, and the city’s main Muslim cemetery became the International Fair Ground.
Though the vast majority of tombs in the Jewish cemetery belonged to #Sephardim, there were also many Ashkenazi tombs, as well as some headstones dating back to the Roman era.

A pre-med student I mentor recently watched Wit, and then sent me this text:

"I kept looking for any shred of evidence to defend the way the doctors were acting, and I couldn't find a thing."

I told him that he's about 10 years ahead of where I was at his age.

2/ The play "Wit" by Margaret Edson has a strange but important role in my journey to becoming a physician.

As a college freshman I was pre-law and did #theatre whenever I could for fun. At the end of the year, I was cast in Wit as part of senior directed one-acts.
3/ The play is about the fictional Dr. Vivian Bearing, English professor and leading expert on the Holy Sonnets of John Donne, and her diagnosis, treatment, and death from ovarian cancer. The play focuses on themes of mortality, personhood, and what it means to be fully human.

THREAD: A question I often get from others as a #gamedev after they hear that my previous career was in #Theatre / #Musicals is “What similarities are there between the two?”

Welp, there are quite a few, so figured I’d talk about some of em!
If I only have a few moments, the first thing I talk about is the large group of specialists collaborating together to make art.

In Theatre, Actors, Musicians, Lighting & Set Designers, etc.

In games; Actors, Composers, Programmers, Lighting & Environment Artists, etc.
If I have more time I like to talk about small examples too like “Cheating Out”.

“Cheat Out” in Theatre means instead of facing how you would naturally face (in this case towards each other), “Cheat” your body “Out” towards the audience so they can see you.

Listen. It took me years to realize I stopped auditioning for musical theater not bc I was lazy, but bc I was in pain. It wasn’t the rejection—it was walking into a room & being made to feel like your body was unreasonable, that by showing up you were wasting everyone’s time.
It was standing in a row with 30 girls in leotards and LaDucas and watching the casting director’s eyes skip over you as he scanned the line, or mindlessly push your headshot to the rejection pile with without even looking at you long enough to see your face.
It was the urge to walk up to the only other big girl in the holding room & sit in silent camaraderie, while secretly hating she was there. There were only so many “old lady” (or “fat friend” or “clueless teen” or “sassy villain”) roles to go around and they’d never cast you both

#VendrediOperaChinois Opéra Puxian « Le récit du Lapin blanc » 莆仙戏《白兔记》

🎭Le #théâtre Puxian (l’#opéra Puxian), vieux de plus de mille ans et surnommé le « fossile vivant des opéras chinois » est l’un des quatre grands théâtres du Sud.

👇Synopsis de la pièce en bas
Il permet l’introduction dans le #Fujian des cent opéras déjà en vogue dans la plaine centrale. Le répertoire traditionnel compte plus de cinq mille pièces, parmi lesquelles quatre-vingts des Song et des Yuan ont été conservées.

#opera #theatre #spectacle #chine #tradition
Les personnages, vivants et émouvants, manifestent les aspects singuliers des représentations du théâtre du Sud de l’époque. La musique est riche et raffinée, la langue lyrique se rapproche de la poésie Tang.

As #COVID19 cases are found to spread, #Melbourne (city of ~5 million) tries to contain them by going into #Lockdown.
(The interview features the idea of a dedicated #Quarantine building - that would actually help, I guess)...
"People acting as if the pandemic was over was 'not the answer, it is part of the problem' ".

"The virus had leaked from postcodes already under the stay-at-home orders to other parts of #Melbourne."
(and beyond, it is feared).
Due to #Melbourne's outbreak, neighbouring South Australia is about to completely close it's borders to #Victoria.

(Nearly) no exceptions. And those essential few who are allowed in, will have to wear facemasks the entire time...

Imagine an industry that made billions for the treasury. Imagine an industry that made billions for the wider economy. An industry that literally existed to make us better humans, to create connections, to show us how to dream and remind us what dreaming looks and feels like.
Imagine an industry that made us famous across the world, that brought people from around the world to the UK. Imagine an industry that told young people that their stories, their voices, matter, whoever they are.
Imagine an industry that made money and made hearts swell.
Imagine an industry that made something that helped children and adults walk taller and believe in themselves. Imagine an industry that allowed you to "walk a mile in another person's shoes", the way Atticus Finch told us to.
Imagine that? It exists. It's dying. It's theatre.

Vorpommern-Greifswald district (where rejections of #Gütersloh residents took place, yesterday)
has specific rules:
"Those who return from international risk areas (out of Germany) or whose Corona-Warning App has alerted them, need to report to authorites" Image
In fact, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern's Corona-ordinance really prohibits entry of people from international risk areas AND german risk areas as well.
It's just not prominently featured on their websites.

(Overlooked that myself, hence deleted earlier tweet)… Image
People from #Gütersloh district may have to scrap all their holiday plans anyway...

An official #Lockdown is just being announced for the entire district.

Nous allons démontrer que le roman « Les Liaison dangereuses » de Choderlos de Laclos se déroule en 1773.

La démonstration qui va suivre est détaillée plus longuement sur ce blog :…
En effet, l’année à laquelle se déroule cette histoire est une énigme car les 175 lettres de ce roman épistolaire portent toutes une date dont les deux derniers chiffres ont été gommés.

2 years ago, I was covering Day 1 of testimony in the Gerald Stanley trial alongside @_chamilton and @WarickCBC. I saw a workshop version of “Reasonable Doubt” a year ago. Tonight I’m intrigued to see the final product.* #yxe #saskatoon Image
* About that: the play’s interviewer/editor, Joel Bernbaum, says he was making adjustments to the script even last night. He interviewed close to 300 people and mined the trial transcript to craft a “documentary play” about #saskatchewan race relations. #yxe #saskatoon Image
