This is a big question that I would like to put out there- the project kind of depends on the idea 😉
In my previous theatre show I added a projector to the back wall of the set. The videos projected were scenes that occured within the story world and made sense to the original content.
For ex. Pierre excuses himself to go to the toilet. The audience sees him exit stage and then walk into the bathroom (video) as he contemplates his ‘next move’. Katya lies on the couch waiting for him.
Everybody in the audience really enjoyed this part of the show, and it was integrated in a way that it made sense to the story.
With that in mind, why not allow our audience to have a device with them that pushes the story along, or sends them content that adds to the storyline.
Should theatre stay true to its form or will audiences get into a ‘second screen’ experience?
Check out the ‘Project as it is’ to get an understanding of how it might work.
