Design for Play: An intro to Digital Immersive Theatre
Hosted by Listen to Dis' Community Arts Organization
This February 18th, 2021 from 6pm until 8pm CST, Listen to Dis' Community Arts Organization is hosting a digital theatre workshop, "Design for Play: An intro to Digital Immersive Theatre" with Torien Cafferata of Not a Box Theatre in Saskatoon over Zoom. Not a Box Theatre is an immersive theatre company that stages devised, digital work that invites unheard voices, subverts the relationship between audience and artist, and experiments with what it truly means to play.
An immersive theatre workshop in the land of snow and quarantines? Impossible. Unfortunately, Torien Cafferata of It's not a Box Theatre is good old friends (arch-nemesis?) of the impossible and is here to run you through how to use digital technology to bring theatre back to our lives in strange, intimate, innovative ways. Discover the techniques of game design that have been hiding in theatre (and vice versa) and let's get playing!
