Mr and Mrs Smith would like to invite you for dinner and aperitifs.

AT HOME WITH MR AND MRS SMITH is a collaboration between Birgitta
Hosea and Matt Wicks in which they perform live through cartoon
avatars as part of the UpStage 090909 Festival. Loosely inspired by
Ionescu's 'Bald Primadonna', this cyberformance invites audience
participation to explore the random and meaningless nature of polite

Performance times: 10am, 4.30pm (tbc) and 9.30pm (UK time GMT)
090909 UPSTAGE FESTIVAL 9th September 2009

UpStage is an Open Source, web-based platform that enables people
anywhere in the world to participate in live online performances,
created in real time by geographically dispersed performers.
Audiences interact through a text chat tool. The players use images,
audio, video and text to create the performances, operating "avatars"
- graphical characters that move and speak aloud. The performances
are accessible to anyone with an internet connection and browser.
