The impact of storytelling: the pleasures, pains, practicalities and ethics

Jane Gauntlett


The Beach

Jane will share her experiences (the beauty and brutality) of working in theatre, interactive theatre, game, virtual reality, augmented reality and mixed reality. This will be followed by an open discussion to answer any questions and share anything she has learnt about working in the art and technology sector.

Jane is an artist, writer and director for interactive theatre, audio, game and XR. Jane’s work is inspired by human connection, the power of storytelling, advances in technology and audience impact. In 2009 she founded The In My Shoes Project; each piece combines multi-sensory theatre, technology and first-person documentary to recreate extraordinary real-life events.
