Is it possible to combine theater and games? Can theater be ‘played’ in the literal sense of the word and turn audiences into participants? The theater collective machina eX answers those questions since their founding in 2010 through their impressive gaming theater, in which point ‘n’ click adventures can be experienced as walkthrough interactive performances.
Invited by the Initiative Game Studies and the Institute for theater studies the members of machina eX will not only introduce their work in this workshop but develop new theatrical games with the participants. The question will be how interaction between the audience and gamified theater can be realized, how those formats can be rehearsed and evaluated and where their limits are.
