WHAT IS A ‘LIVE STREAM’?
Instead of having to travel many miles to a theatre in cities such as London, you will be able to see these productions live on our big cinema screen. This is possible because cameras positioned around the theatres can bring the digital ‘stream’ directly to The Welfare. It’s not like a cinema film, more like a live theatre production, but with close ups and different camera angles.
‘Encores’ are recordings of the live screenings that occur when we are not able to show the production at the same time as it is happening in London, and so we are allowed to schedule it close to the actual performance date rather than miss it altogether.
