New Media Tools: AR, Digital Infrastructures, and Performance

Larry will speak about incorporating media technologies into theater & performance; from live cameras & projection to the use of newly emerging VR/AR/XR technologies, creating new forms for storytelling. He will go into detail on two recent projects; The Elements of Oz and The Invisible Givens; which use mobile devices based apps. It’s an extremely exciting time for theater makers and artistic storytellers because the technologists and corporations developing these tools have very limited imaginations about the best uses for their gadgets – they do however, seem to understand this – and they see storytelling as their “killer app.” That’s our cue, if we can take it.
