STAGE TUBE: Sneak Peek - Punchdrunk Theater's Felix Barrett Set for FUTURE OF STORYTELLING Summit
Felix Barrett, artistic director of Punchdrunk Theater Company, will be speaking at the Future of Storytelling (FoST) summit in New York on October 3. He wants to completely change the way theatregoers experience shows. Click below to get a sneak peek!
By emmersing the audience in the show, essentially making them a part of what they're watching, they become more involved as their senses are heightened, explains Barrett. It provides a different, more involved experience than sitting in an auditorium watching a show. The audience becomes the show.
FoST was created by book publisher Charles Melcher (with a braintrust that includes Al Gore) to examine the future of storytelling - as it's no longer in books. Some of the biggest creative leaders, like Barrett, present themes they'll address in videos that have just been rolled out:
Summit attendees choose who they want to participate in a conversation with based on these videos.
