Chautauqua Live was a two night spotlight of artists and community members who were commisioned as a part of Theatre Projects Manitoba's Chautauqa: The Interlake Trail (2020/2021 season).

As Technical Digital Director for Theatre Projects Manitoba, Joshua was responsible for solving for digital delivery of the art and performances of the Chautauqua team of artists and thus Chautauqua Live was born. This involved solving and designing for the technical requirements of embedded live picture-in-picture ASL-English interpretation, switching between four camera feeds, taking in over 15 audio inputs, and designing a program that switched between live and pre-recorded content. On top of that, Josh animated opening and closing credits for Chautauqua Live and directed and filmed a number of the pre-recorded artist spotlights for the night.

Chautauqua Live was a success with hundreds of viewers across Canada tuning in across Facebook and Youtube.
