About

Combining the live aspect of theatre and the immersion of gaming, immersive theatre is pushing the boundaries of what theatre can be. Non-linear narratives, unconventional spaces and audience participation all play a part in this unique form of storytelling. Learn the fundamentals of immersive theatre with Nayantara Kotian, founder and director at Crow, in this one day workshop at the site of Crow’s next production.


This workshop is for anyone with an interest in performance and exploring new modes of storytelling.

    Crow

    Crow creates immersive experiences. By combining the live aspect of theatre and the interactivity of gaming, we build multi-sensorial worlds with their own sets of rules that the audience can explore, touch, inhabit and influence.

    Founded by director-designer Nayantara Kotian and writer-actor Prashant Prakash in 2014, Crow is one of the first to bring this form of storytelling to India. Crow also created The Floating Market at U/A, a festival for all ages, in 2016.
