Extending Story-Worlds through Social Media
Myers, Misha; Watkins, Dane; Sobey, Richard
Research in Drama Education, v21 n3 p431-437 2016
Technological innovations in digital communication technologies offer possibilities for new forms of participation and storytelling in theatre. WildWorks Theatre Company creates work that is discovered and devised with partners, artists and community participants in response to specific cultural and geographical locations. The work includes people in roles that can mirror their everyday real-life roles inside the performance world. This paper considers findings and interaction methods of research the company pursued with researchers Misha Myers and Dane Watkins, to explore how transmedial methods may extend the reach of story-worlds it creates and how these methods might enhance community relationships and experiences of the work for both participants and audience members.
