About the participants:
Michael Punter is a playwright and scholar. His plays include The Wolves (Paines Plough), Darker Shores (Hampstead Theatre), Stagefright (Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds) and Skerryvore (London Horror Festival). His academic interest is in magic, witchcraft and the supernatural on the stage and he has recently contributed Writing the Ghost to Palgrave’s volume Contemporary Gothic; Globe and Globalization: A Midsummer Night’s Dream on Stage to CAPA’s Journal of International Education and is presently working on a history of British ghosts. His East Sussex-set play The Incident at Marshfell can be seen at the Stables Theatre, Hastings from 23rd to 25th November.
Having previously worked as an Immersive Event Producer and Audio-Visual artist, Adam’s interest in immersive storytelling was inspired by his academic study of the Tarot. His dissertation for the MA in Myth, Cosmology and The Sacred was entitled ‘The Art of Transforming the World: Tarot and the Future of Immersive Experience’. The Tarot Experience was his hypothesis for the future of narrative creation in the immersive arts, and is now the title of a VR piece developed for the Oculus Quest 2.
