cSPACE Theatre is Fully Equipped to Face a Future of Live Streaming

The intimate Studio Theatre at cSPACE has been host to an incredible variety of performances and events since opening in 2018. In a short time we’ve seen countless productions in our space, including dance, film festivals, musical presentations, opera, circuses, and experimental theatre. Adaptable and welcoming, the Studio Theatre is ready for anything.

Unprecedented times

When the Covid-19 pandemic began in March 2020, no one could foresee the long lasting impacts it would have on arts and culture. Shutdowns and restrictions on performing arts venues affect thousands of arts workers across the country. With ongoing pandemic challenges still today, we may not see venues and events return to full capacity for some time to come.

Adapting to the new live stream reality

The desire for performers and audiences to connect is more present than ever. Many groups are looking at new and innovative ways to deliver their message. Recorded and live streamed performances continue to be a vital tool for keeping the arts in our hearts. Online, recorded, and hybrid events are here to stay, and offer great opportunities for a new kind of connectivity.

Silver linings 

There are unexpected benefits to the new virtual reality. Arts groups are able to access audiences they wouldn’t have imagined reaching just two years ago. Attracting global patrons is not just possible, but a growing trend. Being able to share a creative vision across the country, and across the globe, is an exciting development for many smaller companies that lack the ability to tour. Collaborations between artists that may have proved formidable a short while ago are adapting to online platforms. 

Live stream upgrades provide opportunities

cSPACE recognizes the immediate and pressing need to support artists in these challenging times. Thanks to Canadian Heritage and the Calgary Foundation, our Studio Theatre (already a favourite with local arts groups) is now outfitted with powerful new recording and live stream equipment to meet the demand.

Here to Stay

The benefits of online and live streamed events will continue far into the future. As in-person events slowly return, more and more organizations will continue to choose hybrid events as a way to expand their reach and maximize revenue potential. We are proud to be part of this evolving arts scene, and to be of service to Calgary’s creative community.
