Twitch Plays Improv is an experiment in participatory narrative creation that utilizes the live streaming video platform Twitch.tv as an arena for broadcasting improvisational theatre games. Drawing on the structures and implications of the "Twitch Plays Pokemon"phenomenon, Twitch Plays Improv digitizes the performative and participatory conventions of improv, allowing actors and audience members to collaboratively develop dynamic scenes and stories.
Communication is complicated. Face-to-face communication, which many would consider to be the simplest form of communication, becomes a challenge when you consider factors such as differences in language and culture, the use of body language, and tone of voice, etc. These factors inherently make text-based communication more difficult. This project seeks to address these issues through the research and design of communication systems and tools that allow users to gracefully convey such information effectively.
