Red Light was programmed as part of the socially distanced 2020 Brisbane Festival, billed as bedtime stories for adults, I developed virtual theatre software to deliver the performance as a phone call. With capacity for 170 patrons, switchboard software dials the audience into a radio play style performance. The dialling algorithm is able to deal with common situations such as missed calls and voice mail, retrying a few times to ensure a patron doesn’t miss the performance. A visual dashboard provides a clear overview of how patrons are progressing through the show.
