From Theatre to Interactive Drama

perform2larp

Johanna MacDonald (Walkabout) is a transnational Finnish-Canadian artist in theatre, performance art, stand-up comedy, drag performance, punk music, writing, video, and larp. She started out in Toronto with a fairly traditional education in drama-based theatre as an actor and director, but then moved to Finland, where she couldn’t make heads or tails of the language. This move catalyzed an interest in physical theatre and dance, which is where Johanna focused intensively for the next half-decade, training in about half a dozen well-known theatrical methodologies from butoh to biomechanics.

Together with Aarni Korpela, Johanna is the creator of Walkabout, a long-term crossover project between larp, theatre, and performance art. Their latest project, The Lovers’ Matchmaking Agency, will ran in Oslo, Copenhagen, and Helsinki in the summer of 2012.

In this presentation, Johanna discusses her transition from theatre to LARP (interactive drama) and how other artists might find a similar transition very useful and highly creative.

See the original post here from the absolutely wonderful Nordic LARP Talks series which should be a MUST BOOKMARK for anyone with even a half-way serious interest in interactive drama, theatre, or live action roleplaying.

As a side note, some of you are also familiar with my work in combining immersive interactive drama or roleplay with trance or experiential hypnosis which I’ve written about in the Journal of Experiential Trance (http://trancesociety.net/journal) – yes, that journal is also accepting submissions. Our Vicarious Experiential Machine work fits this sort of thing perfectly.
