Recording: Is This Really Live? Performance in the Age of XR, Mar 13, 2023

Copresence. Liveness. Feeling seen. When you ask someone why they love live shows, these are some of the answers you get. But what about an XR performance? One with some live elements and some pre-recorded? One where the audience members and their agency may or may not be apparent? This session dives into the assumptions we make about “live” and explores how tools and techniques used in XR Theatre allow us to create similar sensations. Join innovators in this space as they share never-before-seen behind-the-scenes looks at productions, R&D, and studies exploring and expanding this new frontier.
