WESTON will be teaming up with Las Vegas for two linked performances today (Thursday) and tomorrow (Friday).

Students from Weston College will be performing alongside students from the University of Nevada in Las Vegas (UNLV) with the help of a video link.

The show, Time Lapse, will be tomorrow (Thursday) from 4pm and Friday from 8am.

Weston College higher education curriculum co-ordinator for performing arts degrees, Ged Stephenson, said: “The performances will be done over video link, although the students will perform as if they’re on stage together.

“The technology that is being used to achieve this is ground-breaking and it’s believed that this performance will be a world first because there are no time delays in the visuals and only a very slight one in sound.”

The collaboration establishments began about a year and a half ago, after one of the college’s lecturers, Sylvia Lane, approached UNLV while on holiday in Las Vegas to see if she could forge links there.
