Software designer and hair model Jeremy Bailey had a moment of sheer awkward brilliance last night. During a Q&A following his presentation The Future Of Theatre an audience member asked, “If the future of theatre is through computers, what about the trained theatre actors?” Jeremy swiftly quipped, “What about them? I have no respect for training. I want to be onstage. I have no training.”
Bailey’s presentation is genius. He applies a rudimentary understanding of theatre with brilliant software design skills to reinterpret and predict the future of theatre. Think karaoke Shakespeare meets wii controller meets geometric shapes. Hilarious.
Check out this video of Bailey testing the eye motion detectors.
FYI Jeremy syncs his performance to twitter: www.twitter.com/futureoftheatre. For real.
