Title: New media And Theater: From Interactive Multimedia To Virtual Theater
Author: Lazoglou, George
Summary: This research attempts to approach the new media – analogue and digital – through the performing arts and in particular the theatrical practice. Their incorporation into the dramatic narrative is explored, as well as the concerns that arise about their use. Through a historical retrospective that begins in the late 19th century with the discovery of electricity and cinema and their application to the theater, the most important steps in the development of the use of new media in dramaturgy are presented. From Erwin Piscator and the epic theater to date, the era of digital media and the Internet, their uninterrupted presence in theater and art in general has been extremely important. The modern research efforts of universities like Kansas and Henry Ford Community College, as well as experimenting with the work of artists such as Troika Ranch, Julie Martin, George Coates and Gertrude Stein Repertory Theater, have led to a new relationship between the documents arts and technology.3D scenes with real-time navigation, stereoscopic projections and virtual characters that act like real actors, make up the puzzles of digital media in the contemporary theater. Through the field research, a presentation of the virtual reality applications in the “Hellenic World” of the Foundation of the Hellenic World, as well as the first production of virtual theater in Greece with motion capture system, is a milestone in the Foundation’s research course and more generally integration of digital multimedia in the Greek theater. The bibliography review attempts an extended approach to the IV definition of virtual theater and presents its applications in education and the internet, while at the final stage we explore the particular characteristics of theatrical act and attempts to redefine the term “virtual theater.”
