At the 17th of december the research group gave a lecture with theatrical moments, a so called Performance Lecture, on the subject of Mixed Reality. Scroll down to see the full video registration.
The lecture is about what Mixed Reality is, its technological developments and its relevance for theater and performance. Parallel to the preparation of the lecture a project was started in cooperation with the departments of Design for Virtual Theatre and Games (DVTG) and Theatre Design (TVG). In this Mixed Reality project students where asked to create illustrative theatrical moments for the lecture.
The lecture was given in two parts with a short break in between. Both parts consist of two illustrative theatrical moments designed by the students and the lecture given by Joris Weijdom. Following every presented student project Marcel Alberts, one of the mentoring teachers, gives his live feedback on the final result. Below you can see the general structure of the presentation. For a more elaborate division have a look at the chapter overview below the video (Click on the [Continue reading...] link below the video for the full chapter list).
Lecture: about Augmented Reality (with live demonstration), newest technological developments and the usage of projection (including 3D projection mapping). And a historical overview of Mixed Reality technologies.
Lecture: about unconventional forms of theater (using public space and Internet) and concluding thoughts how Mixed Reality relates to theater practise.
