Hello, I'm Ed.
During this session, we will be exploring group synchronization within remote conferencing.
This is not a technical talk. This is more like desk aerobics.
Through theatrical frameworks, we will begin investigating some of the constraints in video calls (sound, costuming, lighting, networking).
Hope to have you at the session--
P.S. If you are able + comfy joining with a microphone and/or camera, please do! This will allow us to explore a greater range of constraints but is not critical to our success.
