This Is Nowhere: Location-based Theatre & Reality, Augmented

English session - Beginner

In 2018 downtown Halifax became the stage for a unique production, part Pokemon Go, part performance art. In the years since, the same technology has been used to provide performance and expression opportunities even in the age of COVID.

This talk will explore the challenges and rewards of writing code (in Ruby on Rails and React Native) for live art performance, how to not get derailed by lockdowns, and the many ways reality can be augmented.
