Transcend Streaming was born out of a simple question:

If you could make something better,
why wouldn’t you?

Transcend Streaming was born out of a simple question:

If you could make something better,
why wouldn’t you?

The early Zoom readings were an innovative response to
the pandemic, but we wondered:

Wouldn’t they be better if they had design? How could we do that? Wouldn’t it be better if directors could have real staging again? What would that take? Wouldn’t it be better if the actors could focus on acting rather than turning their video on and off? What would it take to do that? 

The answer now is Transcend Streaming.

Tran·scend

/tran(t)ˈsend/ (verb) to go beyond the limits.

Our mission is to elevate digital and hybrid theater to the level of magic of in-person performance. We prioritize accessibility, engagement, and the kind of innovation that leaves the audience wondering, How did they DO that?!

This Moment Is An Opportunity

The pandemic and our collective pivot to digital content have revealed something important: streaming and digital accessibility is a massive opportunity for every industry. Many traditional audiences want to attend events in person, and now we know that there are so many more people who are eager to engage virtually.

In the past, there were many barriers to accessing the magic of live events: A potential ticket-buyer would have to be in a certain place, at a certain time, with their family obligations taken care of, with any accessibility needs met, to even consider attending a show or event. Now, everyone can engage with the wonderful work we make. Everyone can participate. Everyone is welcome. Your community can expand beyond the traditional limits and you can have an impact far beyond your own doors. Your message can transcend.

Leanna Says: "My absolute favorite moment in a consultation is when I’m showing a work sample to a prospective client and mention that what they’re seeing was done fully live. The jaw-drop, the expansion of possibility, the realization that things that seemed impossible are not only doable but within reach? It’s beautiful." Read more about what Leanna has to say in this exclusive interview on the medium here.
Kyra Says: "Coming from a world of performing, it was exciting to take a look at art from the other side of the table. My 18 years of on-stage training allows me to prioritize and anticipate what the performers, clients, and speakers need to feel supported. We are able to give people their tools back. Actors don’t have to be their own technicians, stage managers can go back to calling cues and directors can dream. We’re here to make the magic happen."
