Personalised Immersive Theatre - what, how, why (& why not...)

We are delighted to open new lunchtime talk season with South West Creative Technology Immersion Fellow, Åste Amundsen. Aste will be discussing the exciting work she completed whilst on the Fellowship.

Speaker

Åste Amundsen

Aste designs and creates immersive experiences. She utilises gaming-elements and audience responsive narratives to mobilise audience participation. Her projects include Sonic Sideshow and Apocalypse Gameshow. She co-founded Glastonbury’s Underground Piano Bar and founded Computer Aided Theatre Ltd developing a set of commercially available immersive narrative tools for live event producers.

Åste Amundsen will be talking about her work on developing narrative tools for live immersive experiences, and research into profiling-for-personalisation, and audience responsive storytelling for real-time physical spaces and discussing her intiiall research question - What represents meaningful parameters for personalisation of live immersive audience experiences? Currently the most prevalent frameworks of profiling are shaped to attain sales. What would a profiling system for transformational live audience experiences look like?

This Lunchtime Talk is part of Open Studio Friday, which takes place at the Studio every week.
