    About the Experiments


    Welcome to the research wing of the SpiderWebShow. Here, we are attempting experiments to determine how the mutability of virtual time and space can be used as a tool to create exceptional theatre experiences. Our inaugural batch of experiments are approached using common online tools and networks in service of a theatrical sensibility: story, character, conflict and action. If nothing else, in this space we choose to follow Samuel Beckett’s directive to “fail and fail better.” But if something more, we hope you will join with us to create new portals and spaces for theatrical expression. It may sound like research but we are betting on it becoming like theatre.
