Beginning in a class in spring semester, students have been researching, improvising and devising this “transmedia” project.
“Transmedia is a newer thing in the theatre world,” King said, “but it’s just a fancy way of saying a mixed media project. There’s a lot of video projection, sound mixing and live mixing. We have a band for certain sections of the show as well as dance pieces. It’s all mixed in with film realism, scene work and so on. We’re bringing together all these media to make one cohesive show.”
