Tour "What the Moon Saw"

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

UW researchers are conducting a test run of newly developed motion capture technology to see how it works in a theatrical setting with a live audience.  This is a bit like a staged reading, but for technologies rather than scripts.  The video game displayed here is part of a new play, What the Moon Saw, that will debut during the August Saturday Science.

In this tour, you will get a chance to try this game yourself. The object is to herd the chickens back into their coop. To do so, wave your hands, your feet, or any other parts of your body to coax these birds back into their home. Then come back next month to see the whole play.

Please meet in Fifth Quarter Studio for this tour that will leave promptly at 12:30. You can stay as long or as short as you'd like.

During the next Saturday Science (August 10th at 10:15 and 11:15) young audience members will have the opportunity to participate in What the Moon Saw and provide feedback.  The feedback the young people and their grown-ups provide will be instrumental in developing the next phase of the project.
