The Interactive Media for Performance Specialization in the CalArts School of Theater trains visionary artists in the creation of interactive tools and moving imagery for live and time-based artwork.
The Specialization focuses on four major areas of application: Integrated Media Performance (including theatre, opera, dance, and concerts), Interactive Installation and Site-Specific Art, Architectural Projection and Digital Image Surfaces, and “Living Room Interactive” (the employment of physical sensors, advanced display technology, socially networked remote participants and fictional narrative in a self-guided experience).
The curriculum cultivates each student’s artistic process, helps them build technology/software skills, and brings about an awareness of contemporary media theory in lab- and discussion-oriented classes. The focused, small group of MFA students will engage in personal and Institute projects under the direct mentorship of their advisors. The Specialization aims to attract a variety of collaboratively minded students from the various areas of art and technology that will make these ambitious interactive projects possible, including Film/Video, Computer Programming, Visual Art, Interactive Systems, and more.
