The Other Way Works present Bandstand Audio Theatre Experiences
The audio theatre experiences (like radio plays) are located in the landscape, and can be discovered and experienced using your iPhone's GPS in conjunction with this App and a pair of headphones.
The App contains audio theatre experiences for Bandstands in the West Midlands, UK:
Lightwoods Park, Bearwood, Birmingham (Solo Experience)
West Park, Wolverhampton (Solo & 2-Person Experiences)
You can load and browse the App from anywhere to find out about and preview each experience. But you will only be able to listen to the full audio experiences on location at the Bandstands listed, when the App enters a GPS triggered mode.
Users will need to use the App with headphones.
Bandstands invite an audience. Lonely, empty stages standing ready at the centre of parks and squares. They seem resonant with what used to happen there, and ripe with possibility. Our Bandstand Audio Theatre Experiences invite you to inhabit these spaces afresh creating a new performance event which places you at the centre of the action. Listen to the stories unfurl as you take a trip around the bandstand with these exclusive, intimate performances designed just for you.
“The Other Way Works is a dynamic young company that is successfully exploring the possibilities of what theatre can and might be” - Lyn Gardner, The Guardian.
