Abstract

This paper explores how theatrical and performative practices inform interactive digital narratives. It does this through a case study of Looking for Love, a new piece by fanSHEN. The creative process used to create Looking for Love is analysed in terms of its roots in theatrical processes, particularly in terms of characterization, the relationship between structure and improvisation, dramatic arc and the role of the spectator.
