New, smaller scale formats seem to be emerging that are easier to produce and might also fit better in our changed and busy lives. Here are some examples I have come across:
Covid has forced a pianist to play at different times and without a break. And he has loved it so much, he doesn’t want to go back.
Under Covid restrictions film director Pedro Almodovar produced a 30 minute film with actress Tilda Swinton. While smaller-scale it seems, however, he spared no expense.
The visual arts are experimenting with smaller pop-up locations and partnerships with outside organisations. As a case in point, Auckland Art Gallery just opened a satellite exhibition – in addition to its current blockbuster though, not instead.
