The Theatre Team is bringing in experts, performers, producers, script and play writers, world builders and designers, and others to offer career and skill-building advice to those eager to enter into the theatre and production industry in virtual reality, augmented reality, and mixed reality, wherever the immersive technology takes them.

Educators in VR Theatre Team meetup in AltspaceVR.In the past few months, the new Theatre Team brought us amazing discussions and presentations on the ground-breaking and boundary-pushing technology in use across many different social VR platforms. We’ve discussed how to act through the fixed limitations of avatars, how building for stage productions comes with the ability to realize scenes beyond imagination and how they cope with the challenges of current technology, and how XR, especially virtual reality, has kept artistic spirits alive and thriving during the extended lockdown.

The Educators in VR Theatre Team Project explores theatrical performance, design, and production in VR/XR through a series of workshops, seminars, and experiential development for educators, students, researchers, and those using performance techniques in education and therapy.
