Published: September 12, 2018 by Alyse Dunavant-Jones

Join VCARA in Second Life on Thursday, September 18, 2018 at 6 PM SLT (Pacific) for a live theater and storytelling workshop hosted by Corwyn Allen.
Corwyn will:

  • share his experiences with live theater and storytelling with the audience;
  • speak about working with various groups and what does and does not work for both live theater and storytelling;
  • describe the differences between live theater and machinima, what we call “karaoke theater,” and what “real-time animation” means.

This event will take place at the VCARA Amphitheatre on the iSchool Island in Second Life (SLURL: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/SJSU%20SLIS/47/83/33).
We will also simulcast the event in Zoom for those who cannot join us in Second Life: https://sjsu.zoom.us/j/926315807
