The Space & #PilotLive

York Mystery Plays in the Digital Age

 

The Space

The Space is a new way to access and experience all of the arts - for free. It is funded by the BBC and Arts Council England.

 

 

Available on computer, tablet, smartphone and connected TV, The Space invites you to take part in the biggest summer of arts the UK has ever seen, whenever you want it and wherever you happen to be.

You can watch full performances, catch unmissable live events, delve into rare archive and explore interactive collections. The Space is also a place where everybody can experiment with ideas and play with images, text and sound.

As part of this exciting project, Pilot Theatre are working alongside livestream company Kinura, to enable people from all over the world to view the spectacular York Mystery Plays 2012 this Summer. The livestream event took place on 11 August when viewers were able to watch the performance through multi-camera livestreams.

From 3rd September, visitors to The Space website will be able to create a bespoke version of the production and assemble a personalised playlist of the project, following and watching the narrative from different angles using the archived multi-camera stream.

More than 30,000 people are expected to attend the York Mystery Plays 2012, which is set to be one of the cultural highlights of the summer. We hope to enable many more people around the globe to experience this truly incredible project.
