Abstract

The Water Clock is a networked, interactive theatre production, this piece unfolds across spaces and locations both within the theatre and the internet. This work utilises media feedback loops, and user/audience generated content to inform the development of the production. It was first performed by the Ciliaris Arts Collective on the 27th of May in the QFT's Brian Friel Theatre and environs, and supported by Queens Quater Weekends.The audience were asked to document the first act of the play, as they experienced the events unfold in different orders, they were issued with video cameras, and asked to use mobile phones, still photography and images to record their experiences. This footage was then used both within the second act of the play to create an overlay on stage, but also edited together into a final film. This film is a lasting document of the events which unfold in Act 1 of The Water Clock and also question the assemblage of sequential and non-sequential narrative architectures.
