This ARTLAB invited Evaluator, Peter Bycroft, to evaluate The Mixed reality Performance Lab's process. Peter gave the team the following scenario to consider as part of his evaluation:
A Silicon Valley Arts and Theatre Investment Entrepreneur (Artie) has decided to invest in the MPRL. They like the idea and had convened this meeting of all the key players to ascertain what they have invested in and what the future may hold. They are a venture capitalist and concerned at how they can make it big - like Cirque du Soleil, for example.
Without gilding the lily, the team were asked to answer the following questions:
What might be some of the hurdles or concerns you have ... ie: the things we need to guard against to ensure that the project reaches its most successful conclusion?
Our investment entrepreneur loves this project and wants to see it as a landmark in theatre and the arts. They have appointed you as their key representative - they trust your judgment and will make any changes you suggest. They want you to be up front and honest with them. What significant changes, additions, modifications, related initiatives would you suggest to the program? What are your three best ideas?
Finally, once it is all over - project completed, and it has been a major success. How will we know it was successful?
