V-aRt The DNA Of Immersive Storytelling

Virtual reality and new immersive media is able to effectively blur the line between reality and illusion, pushing the limits of our imagination and opening new fields for screenwriters and storytellers. But how can we tell stories in space? How can we create story-worlds with an active and interacting audience. In the lecture we will provide an insight into artistic space-time-experiences and combine them with dramaturgy to show ways toward space-time-narratives.
