Friday, 18:30-19:30

Whispering Woods

What are the connections between immersive theater and Larp? How do both of these forms engage participants in transformative stories and how does that relate to more traditional art forms like classic theater or cinema? What’s the experience as a participant in a Larp or in an immersive theater play? What’s the experience as a designer in a Larp or in an immersive theater play? What are the ethics of creative such experiences? Is there a difference between players, participants, audience members? What’s the possibility for social change and empowerment through narrative engagement in these forms?
