Setting the Mood: Reinterpreting Rituals for Digital Performance

You enter the crowded lobby and push your way to the bar to buy a drink. A bell rings and you move automatically towards the auditorium to take your seat. What replaces these rituals in digital performance, and how do we create new rituals for new audiences? How do we create anticipation and establish a sense of togetherness? The panel share learnings from physical and digital immersive experiences, theatre and gaming.
