#90 Pioneering Experiential Entertainment with Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser Immersive Director Mikhael Tara Garver

• 81 min

Don't Miss This Exclusive Training: Unless you’ve been living in another galaxy, far, far away, you know that immersive entertainment is exploding… And this week’s guest Mikhael Tara Garver is one of the pre-eminent thought leaders in immersive entertainment and original experiential performances.  Her most recent project made headlines everywhere She was the Director of Immersive Experience for Disney’s Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser. Immersive work requires ALL KINDS OF CREATIVES: filmmakers, digital artists, designers (costume, game, sound, lighting), dramaturgs, UX designers, writers, composers, and musicians (and that list is by no means exhaustive!). So if you want to make money doing your creative thing, you’ll love this mind-blowing conversation about the new frontier of live performance.  Mikhael’s work has been seen in some fancy spaces! The Kennedy Center, The Goodman Theater, The United Nations, and Boston's Institute of Contemporary Art… and you might know her work as the director of The American Repertory Theater's production of Sleep No More. And her take on immersive experience will touch you: She believes immersive work (at it’s best) is meant to make audience members feel seen and heard (wait til you hear her heartbreakingly beautiful story about a veteran’s experience on the Starcruiser). Oh, and if you geek out over holistic experiences, sci-fi, or Star Wars, then this episode is a must-listen!
