SummaryWhat is theatre? Why isn't is ANY time an actor impersonates a character using a script authored by a human being intended to be watched by someone else?

NotesVirtual Un/reality: The Spirituality of Cyberspace * : The concept of the virtual needs further exploration. I have already used the term "virtual un/reality" in previous work. My argument involves two main points. (A) The ability of digital technologies to create "virtual" realities needs to be understood in a much broader sense than that of specialized sensory simulation (i.e. the wearing of special equipment which creates the experience of a complete sensory environment). Any use of interactive computer technology involves one in the creation of virtual "worlds." (B) Digital technologies blur the distinction between the real and the imaginary. The worlds we create digitally may, or may not, be considered "real." The distinction is not a simple or obvious one.

VIRTUAL THEATREVTHEATRE or VTMaybe we have arrived to the new stage in live theatre technology... When the digital forms of web/internet allow us to bring together the known medias -- theatre, film, tv broadcasting.
There are pages @ Film-North website, which are on the matters of film-language applications for the Web. There are pages in several WEB directories on the nature of the Internet itself and hypertext structuring.
One of the biggest problems is to change our linear mentality! We have to learn how to use Open Text principles...At University of Alaska Fairbanks in addition to a traditional degree in theatre (acting, directing, design, tech), we are developing a new BFA in Virtual Theatre. "Performance and Multimedia" is a degree which should prepare are graduates for para and meta-theatre experiences, when Theatre enters the Perfomance Arts zone and high technologies.UAF Film Studies
"Multimedia & Performance" -- it will take some time to shape it. If you have expertise, please contact us. We are looking for computer specialists who can help us with applications of technology in arts -- firstname.lastname@example.org.
High-tech end of theatre, the new tools, which electronic revolution offers to us are including the film techniques. The aestetics of montage should be reworked for the computer screen, the new space.
So now that commerce has moved to the Net, and the Net is moving into business, what comes after that?
"Education," said Mr. Chambers (Sisco, CEO). "The next big killer application for the Internet is going to be education. Education over the Internet is going to be so big it is going to make e-mail usage look like a rounding error" in terms of the Internet capacity it will consume.
What will drive it will be the demands on companies, in an intensely competitive global economy, to keep improving productivity. E-learning, insists Mr. Chambers, if done right, can provide faster learning, at lower costs, with more accountability, thereby enabling both companies and schools to keep up with changes in the global economy that now occur at Net speed. Schools and countries that ignore this, he says, will suffer the same fate as big department stores that thought e-commerce was overrated.
If universities move properly, they will offer the ideal combination of online and instructor-led learning, argues Mr. Chambers. But if universities don't reinvent their curriculums and how they deliver them, for an increasingly Net-driven economy, many students, particularly in information technology fields, "will go to schools online," he says. Many big firms -- Cisco, G.E., I.B.M., AT&T -- are starting online academies to train new employees and to constantly upgrade the skills of existing ones.
"Unlike in the industrial revolution when you had to be in the right country or city to participate, in this new era capital will flow to whichever countries and companies install the best Internet and educational capabilities," says Mr. Chambers. Governments and unions will be powerless to stop this capital flow, which will affect the global balance of economic power. Although the technology exists today, this revolution will take about 10 years to be fully in place. But, insists Mr. Chambers, "it's coming next."

Virtual Theatre is in the this new zone, where Theatre, Film and Web come together.
Live -- thanks to the streaming video technologies. Filmed -- live camera-performers... and shown on your monitor -- Internet. Next -- the true interactivity, when spectator (we call him "specActor") can participate in editing and filming the show (using keyboard and mouse). After "12th Night" -- "The Importance of Being Earnest" in the Fall'00. See WWWilde + vtheatre archive
Footnotes[I use vtheatre group not often, but you are welcome to subscribe!]Computer is not a typewriter or a copy machine. Especially, a computer with the Internet access. It is a printing facilities and a broadcasting station.Well, "virtual theatre" is a confusing term. "Theatre" is an illusion (remember?), theatre is artificial, theatre is a dream, theatre is virtual by nature...
The real electronic revolution is taking place right now and this is the greatest social revolution in history. The silent majority is no more. Internet is not just a new terchnological tool, but a product of democracy and free market -- and a new stage of democracy (global village market-place).
The paradox of Virtual Theatre is this this combination of being public (global) and extreme privacy (viewer at home). The societal organization will be redefine by those new communication arrangements. The US Postal Office issued a communique complaining that email took over the regal mailing. Perhaps they still do not understand that instant access to information is the power -- and freedom. Perhaps we still do not fully understand the meaning of virtual space.
