Fresh Perspectives 6: Mixed Reality and the Theatre of the Future, Arts and New Technologies

By Joris Weijdom, IETM, 2017, 80 pages, ISBN 978-2-930897-13-4

Written by Joris Weijdom, researcher and designer of theatrical mixed reality experiences, and published by IETM, in partnership with the professorship in Performative Processes of HKU University of the Arts Utrecht, the publication Mixed Reality and the Theatre of the Future features a selection of projects describing in detail the artistic design processes, as well as the challenges and opportunities brought about by the use of mixed reality technologies.

The publication is divided in two parts. In section 1, the author underpins the matters that are vital when creating a mixed reality experience. Using a witty style and practical examples, the text is appetizing for both total beginners and advanced users. In section 2, fellow practitioners from different countries share their own experiences, give practical insights into their practices, and share their learnt lessons, tips and possibilities for development and collaborations. Examples range from dating with a cyborg in public space, to streamed MoCap dance performance from different locations, all the way to fully immersive theatrical virtual reality installation.
