Tele-Encounters is an artistic and sociological research project exploring telepresence and family relationships in the context of migration. Based on interviews with Romanian migrants in Spain and left-behind families in Romania, we have created "The Planet of Lost Dreams", a telematic theatre performance about a Romanian family separated by migration. The performance takes place simultaneously in Romania and Spain, with physically present audiences in both countries. The actors in the two studios interact in real-time using video-conferencing and Kinect-controlled animations.
Inspired by interviews with left-behind families of Portuguese migrants, we have commissioned five 360˚ short films to be watched on VR headsets in each country as part of the "Ellipses" CVR exhibition.
Tele-Encounters is led by The "George Ciprian" Theatre in Buzău (Romania), in partnership with UCAM Universidad Católica San Antonio de Murcia (Spain) and Município de Lousada (Portugal).
