First, attendees will draw on theories of method acting training to investigate how to support the experience of transforming into a character in a digital narrative. Then they will discuss the relationships between embodied game interfaces, tangible storytelling, game-based-learning, virtual worlds, and nonverbal communication—with a little design fiction, steampunk sustainability, and DIY and Maker Culture for spice.
