All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players...
If Shakespeare were alive today, he might be helping to create The Voice - a live, interactive story that will happen in and around Orlando during the 2006 Florida Film Festival. UCF's Interactive Performance Lab (iPLAY) is creating a new form of art and entertainment. Trained inter-actors from iPLAYcreate opportunities for non-actors to live and play as primary characters within a fictional story that is enhanced, captured, and delivered using a broad spectrum of digital media.
You are invited to become a part of The Voice.
The Voice was developed in partnership with:
UCF CREATE Center
City of Winter Park
City of Maitland
City of Orlando
The Voice is a fully immersive, live interactive story that will take place this March as the featured NextArt project of the Florida Film Festival. Utilizing the entire city of Orlando as its stage, this story created entirely for an audience of one - a non-actor participant who becomes the lead character within a story that unfolds around her real life.
The Voice is an interactive performance and digital media experience that uses trained improvisational actors in order to create dynamic, interactive story that is enhanced and facilitated by technology. We will be using websites, props, and special effects, in order to enhance the world around the participant.
This project is being created by the Interactive Performance Lab (iPLAY) from the University of Central Florida�s School of Film and Digital Media, and will be directed by Jeff Wirth utilizing creative professionals from throughout the Orlando community.
Jeff Wirth has conducted workshops in interactive performance for Cirque du Soliel, Blue Man Group, Ringling Brothers Clown College, Disney, and Universal Studios. He authored the book Interactive Acting, is on the faculty of the School of Film and Digital Media at the University of Central Florida, and serves as Director of the Interactive Performance Lab.
