Remote collaboration

Challen Wilson and Helen Varley Jamieson discussed their approaches to remote collaboration in making work.

Challen had earlier presented: Winter Overture: extracted – the spirit of the piece… excerpts from a collaboratively written script which she is working on with Cathy Rexford, an Inupiaq woman from the north of Alaska (Kaktovik). She talked about the complexity of workinggathering_05 across geographical and cultural distances and how together they were working on and through that.

Helen explained that with her online collaborative work, she has sometimes never met her co-performers. She talked us through some of the ways they work with text together in real time one-to-one or as a group.
