Transmedia Performance and Pervasive Theatre

Sophy Smith presents the findings from her research project ‘Pervasive Theatre’, which explored the potential of transmedia tools to create a multi media cross-platform performance environment for performance.

The project worked with a director, writer, performers and composer to explore ways to develop narratives that weave together physical and online worlds, blurring the distinction between reality and fantasy, audience and performers, making performance a lived and intertwined part of day-to-day life rather than something that is distanced from it.
