During a time when COVID-19 has prevented physical social interaction, many theatre spaces have closed their doors. This has led to many artists looking at other means of performing, with stand-up comedian Marc Lottering among them.
“As much as I’ve been resisting the idea of doing a live stream show it seems to be the new reality for now. We are not sure when we will get to return to the theatres again as we did previously" Lottering.
While many professionals still fear technology and with implications, such as having to make the most out of performing to a camera, with no live audience, Marc seems to have embraced this world .
Marc also spoke about being part of #BaxterCoffeeAngels Campaign. "As part of The Baxter’s efforts to ensure its continuity and sustainability for years to come, a new fundraising campaign urging the public to ‘Buy The Baxter a cup of coffee every month’ has also been launched. Donating to this campaign is simple and will enable the iconic theatre to continue creating cutting-edge and new South African works and support talented artists. The request is simply to donate R30 (or more, where possible) a month, through a scheduled payment (debit or stop order).” For more information on how to contribute to this campaign visit www.baxter.co.za/BaxterCoffeeAngels.
