Experiential Performance  •  Projection Mappiing

Using projection mapping as a technique, this is an immersive multi-sensory performance created for a class at Brown University.

This technical theatre class under the music department opened up my eyes to seeing the possibilities of technology, and gave me a chance to bring the large scale immersive qualities I long craved for into a proper performance space. For the final performance, I was given the chance to take charge of anything visual, and I jumped at using projection mapping to create immersive scenes. As I took up the role of being the technician during the performance as well, controlling all visual and special effect cues, I had first hand experience understanding the power of technology. From writing the script to building scenes to figuring out technical effects to rehearsing, my team of 3 completed the whole process within 2 weeks, and in the end we successfully created a multi-sensory journey to immerse our audiences in. This project also taught me the importance of collaborating with other creative individuals.

I built these virtual scenes on Sketchup, including a living room and a cafe. As the play dealt with themes of existentialism and self discovery, we wanted clips of space as a backdrop. I then curated a list of space videos, and edited them on Premier Pro into the best sequence.
