We started with an exploration on Wednesday where each actor was to make a choice about what kind of technology their character would have, its physical relationship to themselves, make a choice about its role and who it could speak to. The actors were then asked to go through a scene and decide what the technology does and how to physically manifest this on the floor.
Some of the ways we can use media actors could be:
- Use media actors in the Chorus.
- Robots or Avatars could tweet in real time.
- A serving robot could be controlled by Regine.
- Oswald could motion trigger an avatar.
- Opaque projections could be used on walls.
- Every character could have a different reflection.
- Goon show style - actors in a world triggers alternate world.
