Babylonia [babylonia.ca] is a mixed-reality show created by Radix Theatre in collaboration with the School of Interactive Arts + Technology (SIAT), SFU. The performance explores the impact the Internet is having on our lives and how it might shape our future. In March 2012, the workshop presentation of Babylonia took place in Toronto as part of the Theatre Centreâ€™s Free Fall Festival. This gave researchers Dr. Carman Neustaedter and Vicki Moulder from SIAT the opportunity to test system models for future iterations of the production. Neustaedter and Moulder are studying the orchestration of the narrative structure through virtual and in real-time and the ways in which people engage with the performance to upload content.
