Zoom Me Out

I have been successfully using Zoom and Microsoft Teams to do online role play. It is the perfect tool for this type of work because it allows you to convey facts and information in a clear way and doesn't need to entertain an audience. However, I have recently taken part in the read through of a new piece of writing on Zoom and the reasons that make it so good for conference-type calls, make it unsuitable for creativity. All the fun of hearing words come to life for the first time was absent. The joy of bouncing lines across the table with fellow actors was absent. The experience was distant both physically and emotionally. I know it is a way of keeping theatre going during lock down restrictions but, I think I'll give it a miss.
