Theatre has the best technology? A quick post from a Guardian article looking at technology-in-theatre, as fostered by a ‘Pervasive Media Studio’ project in Bristol. The analogy is with the use of surround sound in the movies: it’s not what you buy a ticket for, but is now a vital part of the experience. There’s scope for much greater use of ‘pervasive media’ in theatre and the ‘magic’ and connections it can make possible.
Yes, connections: there’s a networking aspect to this too as these early practitioners go out into the world with confidence in their ability to combine media.
