1. Lobby 13 Performance
| Group work withTim Cousin(MIT M.Arch), Zekun Fan(MIT M.Arch) | Role: Ideation for performance story, Making Monster's cloth
2. Theater Design - Individual Work
- Type: Cultural
- Location: Jamaica Pond, Boston MA
The project aims to focus on how to curate sensual environments and how to amplify individual audience experience within the performance itself. Lobby 13 performance was a theatrical experiment going back and forth from spectatorship to interaction. This theatrical experiment expands to aiming to see how a particular spatial system affects the user experience.
In reflection of the interactive performance, Jamaica Pond Immersive Theater manipulates and affects audience’s attention by impeding one’s vision with continuous stairs, trail, seating floor plates and intersecting wood beams. Since the performance is scattered in many places, the audience depends on the sound of the performance, which can’t be seen well from where they stand. Throughout the exercise, users can consume space as their own experiences and imaginations, serving as a self-conscious and self-interpreted theatrical environment.

As a response to the performance brief of “Make inanimate objects animate”, three mysterious creatures appear from nowhere, and their dark ceremony awakens a mystical object, which communicates with the audience creating intimate moments.

CHOREOGRAPHING THEATRICAL OBSERVATION
The learning points from the previous interactive performance(Lobby 13 performance) was the extremity of engagement with the audience, from spectatorship to interaction. Dark Forest Theater is a place where it maximizes the moments of engagements. By scattering audience platforms in many places, the design intends to let the audience design their own theatrical experience by exploring different places within the theater.
