Lyric 360 launched12:29, 15th November 2017
London’s Lyric Hammersmith and Digital Theatre+ have launched Lyric 360, which offers a behind-the-scenes look at the Lyric’s The Seagull. Now live on the Lyric’s website for a month, it will thereafter be available exclusively as part of DT+’s online education platform.
The behind-the-scenes insight will allow schools to watch interviews with theatre-makers and staff at the Lyric, and will also demonstrate the extent of the theatre’s offerings for young people.
Lyric 360 marks the beginning of a partnership between the Lyric and DT+, which will see the two create digital learning resources for schools across the nation – and even the world. Next, the Lyric and DT+ will create DT+ Studio, which will be a series of filmed masterclasses focusing on different areas of theatre practice. DT+ Studio will work with leading theatre artists as well as participants of Young Lyric.
Schools in the London borough of Hammersmith and Fulham will, as a result of this new partnership, benefit from unique access to the new resources and DT’s website. Local state secondary schools will be able to attend screenings and insight talks, and will also have discounted access to DT’s subscription services.
