From South Australian theatre group The Border Project comes Half-Real, a production that draws on the Zeitgeist of the gamer generation to concoct a new kind of theatre – one that has the audience steering the experience. Casting the spectators in the role of investigators in a murder mystery, Half-Real uses the ZigZag controller system to have them determine how the story unfolds. The show uses projection mapping and motion tracking to transform the set. Studio Organic created the digital environments and animation for projection.
