This first piece of digital immersion theater, arrives to make you protagonist of a story where you can participate, and be part of the small group of friends of the protagonists.
The main feature of Teatro Festín is that it invites the viewer to participate and get involved with the work he is witnessing in the minute. That is, the history from dramaturgy, direction and acting proposes and invites the viewer to be part of the show.
“Immersion theatre is a concept I have been working on since 2011 when I did the play ‘The Invitation’ in an apartment in Providencia. This type of theatre has to do with placing the viewer in a place and in a context. From an American concept comes the site-specific theatre where it involves the viewer entering and partially part of the story, not necessarily on a stage but rather that it enters particular places, in un traditional locations where we do theater”, says director Felipe Vergara.
The work was born from “that we wanted to make a piece of virtual theater that at the same time is immersive, that is, add everything to what we have seen so far of virtual theater what is the immersion theater. Here it is proposed that through its screens the public participate in the story and be part of it making decisions as the work progresses” concludes Vergara.
