Commit to the Bits

Commit to the Bits is a discovery project exploring the intersection of improvisational theater and Twitch live streaming. By applying factors unique to Twitch audiences such as their members’ mutual awareness and their potential for dramatic agency, we will design performative frameworks that embrace the character work, active decision-making, and role-playing inherent to improv.  We will establish the necessary design principles through methodical playtesting and rapid prototyping, quantitatively and qualitatively exploring the mediums’ overlap over the course of the semester.

Project Team: Trace Dressen, Shawn (Dong Hyun) Kang, Chance Lytle, Parker Ramsey, Joey Yeo
