How much interaction do I give the audience of both the online story and theatre show?
Current Interaction Idea:
1. The online film is interactive in that it requires scrolling/swiping and clicking. The audience will also be given choices that the character will need to make.
2. At a certain point in the online story, the audience will reach a specific location where they can’t continue the story. This location will be an exact representation of what the set of the live theatre show looks like. To continue the story, the audience will be able to return at a specific time and watch a streaming live theatre performance. Once the theatre show is complete they will be able to continue the online world and finish the story.
3. Theatre goers
Participants will also be able to attend the theatre show and watch it live. Of course, this has geographic constraints but those able to attend will have the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of a theatre performance. After the theatre show, they could then log into the app/website and begin or continue the online story.
1. The choices made previously in the application or website could inform the choices made by the actor on stage during the live theatre show.
2. When an audience member logs in online, there could be some sort of mapping device or visual representation of them in the theatre. This could be a nice way of connecting the audiences together.
3. The online audience members could determine the path of the theatre show through various choices they are given online.
