Nicole Zandi's curator insight, April 30, 2013 2:52 PM

This a new age for enjoying performances. We invited the radio into our homes. We opened our door to televisions, to the internet and everything else that has come with it. But this is a reversal in the arts, where we the audience are being invited in. Theatre is no longer set in building- but like heart that defines the home, the audience will now define the performance.

Melissa M's comment, May 5, 2013 12:42 AM
This article is useful when designing your own theatrical pieces for assignments. It allows you to think if you want a passive or interactive audience, and where the boundaries lie for this style of theatre.
Alicia Caruana's curator insight, May 7, 2013 12:48 AM

How can a director produce an effective interactive theatre performance?

Why do many interactive performances fail to fulfill their purpose?

“All we know is that traditional rules of filmmaking no longer apply,” Danfung said. “We’re focused on the technical aspect to begin with as there are still big challenges in the capture, workflow, and playback … but I think the even bigger challenge is the new visual language that is going to emerge.”

“Transmedia is a word for old people”

“Transmedia is a word for old people” | Transmedia: Storytelling for the Digital Age | Scoop.it
The Digital Rocking Chair's insight:


Alisa Rivera:  'As a relative newbie to transmedia, I’ve been feeling psyched about the possibilities, particularly when it comes to storytelling for non-profits. Think of the possibilities for engaging donors and volunteers, bringing organizations’ missions to life in a visceral way.  But when a friend of mine shared my obsession with her 17-year-old daughter, this was her response:“Transmedia is a word for old people.”'

more...
Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, March 29, 8:40 PM

Interestingly, not every young person lives the way the author's friend's daughter suggested. And not every old person needs a word to describe this practice.

Sadim MR's curator insight, March 31, 12:22 AM

"My friend’s daughter explained that young people don’t need a word to describe transmedia because this is how they live every day. The narrative of their own lives unfolds across different social media platforms and they consciously create identities for themselves depending on where, what, how and with whom they share information."

Justin Nalepa's curator insight, March 31, 8:01 AM

Love the comment posted below the article: "The word represents an attack on the institutional tendency to retain control and ownership of cultural vitality... I think your friend's daughter is absolutely right and only slightly wrong because transmedia is another word for power, and sharing control of culture is not the primary objective of the folks who are presently in control of the definition of transmedia."
