Stage your City is a Theater play on several platforms, using digital technologies. The play is performed inside the Theater and "on site" in the city, using AR - Augmented Reality, Social Media Apps and 360 Video Panoramas in a stage play and in site specific performances.
14. July 2017 we tested he first of 3 scenes at ZKM Karlsruhe, using an Augmented Reality App on 8 Ipads, which were positioned in a circle on a stage. The iPads where placed in a circle, where virtual video actors are displayed, introducing an audience to the play of "Sigmagora".
Scene 1: Installation The 9 video actors are introduced. 9 iPads on stands positioned in a circle around stage show recordings of 9 actors. The circle displays an augmented reality video scenario of future ambassadors / experts, arriving in the city to ask for help to solve of Sigmagora in the future. Sigmagora is the future digital power, ruling the world. The audience will meet 3 of experts in the city in person. 6 of them will be represented by video and/or meet them on social media apps during their tour in the city.
Scene2: City The audience splits in groups and an assistants will guide these groups to different sites in the city. The audience becomes active parts of the piece, recording images, texts, solve problems to search solutions for "Sigmagora". They return to the theater or scene 3.
Scene 3: Theater Before the play takes place back in the theater, the audience enters the stage with Cardboard Google glasses, immersed in a 360 video panorama of scene 2. Images, sounds and texts of the audience generate a random 360 video information bubble. 3 real actors join 6 video "talking heads" on iPads.
"Sigmagora" is eventually joining in the play to become present in our time to change our future...
