Since engaging with screens large and small is a major part of people’s lives today, Tal wanted to bring that reality to the stage with a little magic mixed in. “It’s not just enthralling to watch something be created - at times it’s balletic,” explains Tal.
Tal was heavily influenced by live performance for the project. Many of the technicians actually operated the show on stage: actors playing roles as directors and stage managers joined with real stage managers and video switchers and sound people on stage.
“Some scenes in ‘Network’ were so choreographed and complicated, with a million moving parts and cameras rushing through to grab this shot and that shot, that just watching the whole thing became like watching a dance performance”, Tal added.
