I was given a mission to run the English Theatre Arts co-curricular course once again this semester. After seven weeks, we completed the entire run. Like last year, yesterday morning we carried out the seventh and final week performance under the shadow of the Covid-19 pandemic.
However, this semester after preparing for a live online performance the students who are on campus informs me that there would be an internet outage until Tuesday, three days after our performance day. Within 12 hours, the four theatre troupes led by their directors, produced full videos of their plays. Each student acted at their respective locations recorded it and sent it to the editor. After the editing, they sent it to me in time for a livestream session.
In a worse turn of events, unlike last year, I was unable to connect to YouTube live to livestream their video. This was after a successful video livestreaming test two nights before. Thus, I had to edit a full video of the troupes’ submissions as a substitute for the livestream.
Please feel free to view the video embedded above. View it at its YouTube page for the timestamp links in the description text.
Until next year, English Theatre Arts!
