ON NOW: The Immersive Theatre Tool Kit
Led by Rosamund Small and Mitchell Cushman
Interested in creating an Immersive Theatre project, but not sure where to start? Dream big, think bold, and get started with a two-part workshop designed to take your ideas into active creation and planning mode.
Part 1: Writing Immersive Theatre
This workshop will focus on how to think in a 3D, environmental way while you craft your narrative. Build your immersive storytelling skills, and consider how an immersive form can serve your story. Multiple storylines? Alternate endings? Site-inspired? Participatory? One-on-one? Verbatim? Musical? Were taking it all on!
Part 2: Directing, Producing, and More
Part 2 will focus on how to take your idea from page to the stage to the world! Topics covered include: finding the perfect venue and harnessing its secrets, guiding the audience through the work, different models of immersive rehearsal practice, budgeting for your immersive project, and tools for grappling with the logistics of time and space!
