Through this collaborative inter-media creation process participating artists, scientists and invited guests of varied disciplines - robotics, programming, electronics, performance, architecture, video - will work together to create a challenging and innovative event, suitable for large theater venue presentation, allowing for greatest amount of viewing audiences. Spectators in each presentation venue will be able to actively participate in the advancing of the performance, however defined by a rigid dramaturgical structure.

The purpose in this final phase of the overall project is to connect two main concentrations (Interactive Technologies/Live Performance Arena and Virtual Domain/Society) with an emphasis on a development of a dramaturgical structure capable of fusing these two distinct elements, and addressing the issue of a malleable relationship between technology, art and society. Additionally, through the use of streaming technological capabilities, traditional performance arena will be empowered to address and actively include larger communities of participants, bringing advanced possibilities to both artists and today's audiences.
