Artists use UpStage to collaborate in real-time on live performances for an online audience, using the web interface to manipulate graphics, animations, text, text2speech, audio, web cams and drawing, creating live performances that are accessible to anyone with a standard browser and internet connection. The application, which is open source and written in Python, sits on a server so there is no need for artists or audience to download or install anything.
