Q Wu, P Boulanger, R Taylor and M Kazakevich (2011). Trickster at the Intersection: Exploring Virtual Theatre Performance and Interaction. In 2011 ACM CHI Conference In flux workshop: 2 pages.
Trickster at the intersection is a virtual theatre system designed to explore audience interaction and involvement in a participatory theatre performance. Allowing participants to enact change in the development of a theatrical experience allows them to function not only as users of the creative system, but also as co-creators. We describe how the Trickster installation enables audiences to collaborate with the avatar in order to push forward the narrative, preserving the interactivity and improvisation of the theatrical art form and affording users a better sense of presence in the shared virtual world.
