The Memory Works mission is two-fold:
1. To bridge technological and theatrical innovation.
2. To make engaging, accessible, and affordable theatre.
We imagine a world where people attend theatre with the same fervor with which they keep up with their favorite movies and at a similar cost. There is transportive technology already in existence being criminally underused in theatre: interactive and responsive projections, augmented reality, live motion-cap, incorporating the audience during a show through mobile apps or their cellphone cameras. New tech and new applications of existing tech will mean we are constantly changing the way we create and interact with theatre.
