Writer and theatremaker Elinor Lower will discuss the process of developing their in-progress work ‘we meet in the woods’, an interactive theatre game exploring collective storytelling and more-than-human intelligences.

They will explore their attempts at untangling “player agency”, connections they are drawing between devised theatre processes and choice-based gameplay, and creating things that are intended to be broken. 

Eli was one of the Pervasive Media Studio’s 2024 Winter Residency artists. Their work wrestles with / celebrates text, archive, risk, tenderness, environment, control and joy.

Join us online on YouTube Live, or in the building on Friday 21st June 2024 at 1pm for the talk and to take part in the Q and A discussion afterwards.
