In the case of emotions

Danish Royal Theatre (May 2013)

For the first time, the Royal Danish Theatre’s audience could be active co-creators of the concert experience by using their mobile phones. This is within the Interreg project Musikalsk Oplevelsesdesign where three cultural institutions, two academic institutions and the Øresund committee collaborate in developing new audience engagement concepts within classical music and performing arts.

During the Music2Go concert on May 5, 2013 the audience influenced the light in the concert hall by using their mobile phones (through the website Emotions are hard to capture and make visible, but what if you make emotions an active part of the scenography? “In case of emotions” is an interactive system through which the audience can influence the color of the light in the concert hall.
