So a few nights ago I went to Improv 2.0 at the Digitial Worlds Institute (where we have class). Theatre Strike Force was there and as you may have guessed, there was plenty of improv to be had. The troupe enhanced their performance by using the many screens in the room to display the names of characters they would have to perform as. Another member would have to guess who they were portraying. Interestingly, the performance allowed audience members to vote on sets and subject matter using their iPhones and even live-streamed the performance so people could watch it even if they weren't physically present. Interactive storytelling indeed.
