Better Than Life

Coney, Showcaster and Goldsmiths have been experimenting with new ways to create live experiences online. Blending elements from theatre, gaming and TV, this is an exploration of a new type of live event which generates drama by giving audiences online and in the physical space the agency to influence the narrative world of the piece.

Throughout June 2014, we developed a series of 45-minute interactive theatre experiences designed for a small live audience and an unlimited number of people online simultaneously to research the possibilities of this medium.
Over the next months we will be writing a report about our findings. If you would like to be notified when we present our results please sign up to the Better Than Life mailing list below

You can still explore this site to find more information about the project and story fragments from the Positive Vision Movement.

You can read a review of the piece by Andrew Haydon in the Guardian.

We are now analysing all of the data for the performances and looking forward to publishing the results of the research soon.
