  • Neural Interfaces as Art: How Does Neurotheater Work?

    The first performance of the neurotheater took place at the Geek Picnic festival in late June 2017. The new type of dramatic art is based on reading the actor’s emotions using neural interfaces and sharing them with the auditorium through light, color, music, and rhythm. This show is one of the best examples of a trend that is gaining popularity - Art & Science. The project created by a cross-disciplinary team of the Art&Science Institute at ITMO University was introduced to the visitors of the festival of modern technologies, science, and art. ITMO.NEWS has talked with an employee of ITMO University’s Higher School of Lighting Design, Darya Cheremisina (she was working on the performance) and found out the fundamental difference between the new type of theater and the traditional one and what problems the show’s creators have to solve.
