Making Interactive/Game Theatre
12th August 1.30-3pm
Interactive and game-theatre has quickly become a popular form that has the potential to offer a brand new experience to audiences, including for audiences engaging remotely. The complicity that can be established amongst artists and with audiences through effective interactive frameworks, and the opportunity for agency and for play together, open up new worlds of possibility when it comes to storytelling.
This workshop, for facilitators who want to explore making interactive theatre with their young people, will cover:
- How to define interactive and game-theatre
- Outlining approaches to creating interactive and game-theatre
- Considerations that need to be made when working with an audience - formal, ethical and practical
- Understanding game design
- Remote working possibilities
This will be an interactive session where participants will be given the opportunity to create and to ask as many questions as they like.
Hidden Track is a multi-award winning interactive and game theatre company, pioneering adventures in theatre form that tell accessible political stories to unite and empower unheard audiences.
We experiment with new forms of storytelling, live gaming and audience interaction to bypass the barriers that can exclude audiences from the arts: developing original theatre while delivering real audience care; strong, emotional narratives; and voices that aren’t often heard on a traditional stage.
We endeavour to create work that is accessible to anyone, regardless of background or prior knowledge of theatre. Whoever you are, we want you to feel welcome, comfortable, and entertained.
Awards: Best New Writing, Manchester Fringe; Best Newcomer, Brighton Fringe; shortlisted for the Venues North Award, Edinburgh Fringe.
