ProjectLAB @ The Old Market Theatre

In September Christopher Thomas Allen was invited to lead a three day experiment in theatre and technology at The Old Market Theatre (TOM) in Hove. The project was part of TOM’s #TOMtech program which seeks to accelerate learning, promote collaboration and seed new creative ideas in digital theatre. This “hack style” lab focused on exploring how to share a VR experience with a audience who are not in VR and how VR could be utilised in a theatrical situation.  Chris invited leading interactive designers The Workers, interactive sound designer Dave Meckin and Choreographer Annie Lunette Deakin-Foster to collaborate and used the new HTC Vive VR technology to create a series of experimental dance pieces. There is a short film about the process here made by TOM. More documentation of the results to follow shortly.
