Read your background information and discuss as needed
Come up with three quick ideas for staging this using a new technology of your choosing. You won’t be building (this time) so don’t limit it to what you know, although you should limit it to what is possible.You may interpret this as either three different approaches or three different technologies, depending on what makes sense to you
Sketch or otherwise quickly visualize your three ideas. You will be sharing with the class, but don’t worry too much about being perfect, just get the idea across
– How would you stage Ionesco’s Rhinoceros ? Our 3 staging ideas rely on how to interpret and represent the rhinoceros.
1. Absent to the eye, present to the ear. Everytime someone turns into a rhino, the person leaves the stage. In the end Berenger is left all alone and the rhinos come back through sound effects, surrounding the audience.
3. “Naturalistic” rhinos. The actors would actually turn into rhinos with costumes and start behaving like animals while altering the environment, turning it into a jungle by adding setting elements.
2. Symbolized rhinos. The rhinos would be represented by suppressing the actors’ ability to communicate with the non-rhino actors. Their voices would be altered through a microphone, turning their words into gibberish or animal sounds.
It’s a general question but I was wondering what would be the actuel computer games that nowadays are interesting in a new digital approach? I mean, Murray made a kind of an historical review of computer games and I wanted to know if there were some of video games that someone will recommend ?
Do you really think that having agency in a fiction world (immersive, participatory, first person view…) can help people to feel free to act to change the world ?
In video games the agency given by being a first person player is personal and self-rewarding. What kind of satisfaction do we seek through agency in theater as a group ?
