Audience Participation: Best Before

Today in class we participated in an audience participation musical symphony with iOS devices using the echobo app.  This reminded me of another audience participation performance which I participated in a few years ago, called Best Before. In Best Before, each audience member became a member of a virtual community which then progressed through life and evolved. People got to influence their character’s fate, and together the fate of the community developed. It was really engaging, and also made you think about a single life in the context of the fabric of an interconnected community instead of the usual individualist western perspective. I enjoy performances with new perspectives.
