Art Directing in XR

How do you create real-time virtual worlds and the characters that inhabit them? This panel follows the collaborative process of developing and executing a creative vision in a mixed-reality immersive performance. Drawing on examples from Dream – from lighting a character made of stone to finding new modes of expression with actors – the speakers discuss the freedoms offered by new technologies and the constraints and possibilities that arise from doing it live.
