The Art of Emotion - Moving your Audience


Dasha Kittredge


SAT, JAN 6 | 10:30 AM - 11:15 AM (MST)
Ideation Studio (MIX 108)

A how-to session on the devising of moments that your audiences will never be able to forget.

A lecture followed by participatory exercises to demonstrate best practices to elicit desired emotion in your audiences and performers/NPCs. Techniques for sound and music, body placement, motion, touch/haptics, and narrative themes/structures. Whether you seek to inspire joy of achievement or empathic sorrow, to know these techniques is to know humanity better, but using them responsibly is essential.
