The word “immersive” has gained a lot of traction in the last ten years and has been used to describe everything from theme parks to shopping experiences. In this workshop, you will be introduced to immersive experience-building in both theory and practice as it relates to the performing arts. In the first part of the workshop, members of Submersive Productions will discuss the building blocks and cover some groundbreaking productions that led to the rise in popularity of the style. Then, we’ll share examples of some of our own productions and talk about the methods we use to imagine and build stories, characters, and whole worlds. The second part of the workshop will be on our feet, participating in group exercises, improvisations and games—the tools we rely on at the beginning of our process, no matter what the subject matter of the show.

No prior performance experience required, but do bring your curiosity and sense of play!
