Theatre Passe Muraille is hosting a series of free virtual workshops as a part of our Digital Transformation Project. Topics include: immersive storytelling, multi-dimensional and multi-sensorial storytelling using new media and dance technology, and accessibility in digital projects.
October 1, 1-3pm: Sharon Clark, RAUCOUS — Introduction to Immersive storytelling
Raucous is an ever-evolving collective of theatre makers, technologists and designers who investigate how theatre can be made more immediate, urgent and immersive for an audience. Creative Director of Raucous, Sharon Clark, introduces the collective and their work in immersive storytelling.
October 16, 3-5pm: Sammy Chien, Chimerik — Multi-dimensional and Multi-Sensorial Storytelling: Weaving New Media Art, Dance-technology and Interdisciplinary Performance into an Expanded Spiritual Journey
While we’re shedding away the old system that may not work for us anymore, we’re embracing, learning, and growing rapidly as we entering into new worlds that our deeper purpose has been calling us for, Sammy has been deeply investigating the roles and responsibility of artists/creators in relationship with humanity in bigger pictures. In this presentation, Sammy will share some of the highlight of his past decade of art work, especially focus on new media art, dance-technology and interdisciplinary performance in transcultural contexts. Moreover, he will demonstrate some of the process of adapting live performance to virtual format, inspiring the viewers to activate their imaginations beyond the conventional limitations.
October 21, 2-4pm: Jess Watkin, Marjorie Chan, Indrit Kasapi — Accessibility in Digital Projects
Jess, Marjorie and Indrit will share all their learnings from their experiences with accessibility initiatives within a digital context. Initiatives that will be covered are Relaxed Performances, ASL Interpretation, Captioning, and Audio Description and how these initiatives change (or not) within the digital realm.
