Showing Without Going – live performance options without air travel | Call

What are the options for creating, producing and touring live performance in a world where we need to drastically reduce our energy use? Faced with an unfolding climate catastrophe, and building on what we’ve learnt during 2020’s Covid crisis, Théâtre Vidy-Lausanne proposes to try and answer this question collectively.

In what ways, old or new, can live performance thrive and evolve within new constraints and without compromising on ‘liveness’ or international exchange? What examples of live performance formats can we reference or imagine that are feasible without air travel, while also expanding the horizon of what we think of as cultural exchange? This project’s simple aim is to gather these examples to create ‘a catalogue of possibilities’ which could help fire imaginations and indicate new routes.
