Presentation Title and Description:
Improvising with Performer-Controlled Technology during the Rehearsal Process
In scripted theatre, technical effects are often only incorporated with the actors in cue-to-cue and dress rehearsals. Improvising with technical effects during the rehearsal process could uncover issues early, or express alternative ways to craft the performance. Our goal is to demonstrate how technology can be incorporated into the rehearsal process and encourage experimentation with technology.
