Mixed Reality Performance

As a John Wells MFA Directing Fellow at Carnegie Mellon, I am part of The Contemporary Performance Think Tank, which researches specific topics on contemporary performance each year. This past year, I researched "mixed reality performance." As defined by Steve Benford and Gabriella Giannachi:

mixed reality performances deliberately adopt hybrid forms that combine the real and virtual in multiple ways and through this, encourage multiple and shifting viewpoints

My research was just published in full on Contemporary Performance. Read the full write-up here to learn more about mixed reality performance and some of its practitioners, including Blast Theory, Rimini Protokoll, The Builders Association, CREW, Yehuda Duenyas, and more.
