Show Show Lab: Immersive Story Telling - Comedians & Games
Created 5 crowd controlled mini-games to accompany comedy sets from some of Portland's favorite local comedians (Chris Ettrick, Marcus Coleman, Caitlin Weierhauser, Becky Braunstein). Each game is based on a different segment from the corresponding comedy set, hence the immersive storytelling aspect :). The crowd will control inputs to the games via Makey Makey systems. Some games are programmed for co-operative play, while others pit one half of the room against the other. There will be blood! First event was December 8th at PNCA & next is February 2nd 2018 at the Alberta Rose Theater).
Check out the next big Show Show! It's happening at PNCA on December 8th at 6pm, and it's FREE!!
