New Ways of Learning
3rd December 2020
Airlock, a live action graphic novel in three episodes, is one of the first new works to be released from the series of BBC Arts and Arts Council England commissions responding to the COVID19 lockdown as part of the Culture in Quarantine programme.
The programme was created as part of a mission to bring the arts into UK homes despite venue closures, social distancing and countrywide lockdowns. The selection process for these commissions was led by The Space, a digital agency and production company helping to promote wider engagement across the arts and cultural sector.
Made throughout June, with each member of the ITD company working from their own home – performers, director, technologists – Airlock explores themes of isolation, despair and hope, creating an exciting new piece of work which ITD hopes will really resonate with audiences.
