Symposium: Liveness at Play

Join us to talk about…

What is liveness?
How do we do liveness?

This event is part of the weeklong planning session for the new SSHRC project “Scaling Liveness in Participatory Experiences” which looks at “liveness” across three different but neighboring practices: participatory theatre, larps (live action role playing games) and digital-physical games.

Lynn Hughes and Bart Simon, co-founders of TAG, head up the project with their Concordia collaborator, Noah Drew (Theatre) along with the main PhD researcher on the project, JoDee Allen. The international collaborators will be here for the week: Jorge Ramos (ZU Theatre, London) and Jaakko Sternos (University of Tampere, Finland). In addition, for this event, two special invited guests, Lawrence Switsky (Theatre, University of Toronto) and Matteo Uguzzoni (Game Design, Maryland Institute of Art) will join us.
