This session is a conversation between one of New York's leading immersive theater directors, Ed Sylvanus Iskander, and Robert Nashak, COO of the virtual reality game developer Survios. Ed will discuss his philosophy and practice of immersive theater, which has fascinating parallels and lessons for game developers. Many of his productions such as Golden Lotus and Caught present a series of sequential activities in analogy with game levels where audience members are invited to continue engaging with the experience on their own terms. His experiments illuminate new paradigms for creating social agency to drive audience engagement and retention.
