An extraordinary online play performed in Lagos, Barcelona and London, via Google Hangouts.
For Longitude, theatre makers in Lagos, Barcelona and London came together to create a virtual play in a virtual room, with an audience from across the world.
Using social media to interact with audience members, the three episodes of Longitude used Google Hangouts as a stage, experimenting with a new way to share live performance across the globe.
