Scenics experiences / Interactive devices + Audiovisual Experiments +  Classes + Research



MISION 


AUDIOVISUAL & SCENIC CREATIVE LAB



In ARS DRAMÁTICA I design theater productions and interactive audiovisual projects with the support of other artists and institutions.

I also research reception theory studies, gamification applied to arts and motivational design for creating experiences.

I'm currently in the process of developing a thesis about Dramaturgical (de) programming©️.


Alongside all of this I give classes in which I share all of this information with my students, I offer professional consultancy in playwrighting, scriptwriting and interactive experiences and last but not least, I collaborate in other artist's projects.
