Virtual Theatre: Distributed Performance Over the Internet

Over the past three years, the Virtual Theatre project at RIT has
explored the process, technology, and collaborations involved in the
presentation of a theatrical performance in a shared distributed virtual
space.  Our system, built on top of a gaming engine, has been used to
explore distributed theatrical paradigms over a local area network and
has served as a primary motivation for interdisciplinary collaboration
between art and technology students. In this talk, we focus on the
technical infrastructure and philosophies behind the system and discuss
our future plans as we move from a local area network to distributing
the performance over Internet 2.
