Immersive Theatre Project
Conceived and directed by Ryan Underbakke
April 12-14, 2024
Sklarsky Glass Box Theater, SHED
The Immersive Theatre Project is a year-long creation process culminating in a student-made production. Story enthusiasts and artists of all kinds, from actors to game designers to LARPers, will all collaboratively develop a piece "in conversation with" the School for Performing Arts other spring production, Ada and the Engine by Lauren Gunderson. Students will spend the fall semester devising storytelling concepts based on theatrical space, thematic structure, and performance. In the spring semester, these ideas will be transformed into a theatrical showing that connects back to Ada. Throughout the production, students will lead decision-making.
