Research Project – LOST IN ISOLATION

The research team for University Theater’s research project Lost in Isolation is seeking students that would be interested in playing various key roles in the development of the project, which will result in a theatrical installation completed in the early weeks of March.

Lost in Isolation seeks to create an installation that could autonomously tell a story to a participant as they explore the space. There are multiple stories in the space all focused on the theme of isolation. As a participant explores the space and interacts with objects in it, lighting, sound, and automation events will be triggered that will give pieces of story relating to the object interacted with.

If any of the following positions sound like something in your wheelhouse and you would like to use your skills to create something unique with other like-minded ambitious students, please reach out by emailing Angie Hause at

  • Narrative Creation – developing a cohesive storyline based on concepts that have been developed during this past semester
  • Narrative Content Creation – determining the best way to communicate the storyline through a medium that could fit well within the scope of our project
  • Co-collaborator for sound design
  • Integration of technology (sensors, DMX for lights)
  • Video production

This is obviously a precarious time to be doing anything in person with COVID-19 happening, and we are taking precautions to prevent any risk while working in our space. Prior to a participant exploring or working in our space all surfaces and objects will be disinfected by our team, particularly before and after work time in the space.

We hope that any interest will carry into signing up for Theatre and Drama 619 (a 3-credit course), which will be meeting throughout the winter break virtually (in-person work will be limited to the spring semester unless otherwise announced).

Again, please email before Wednesday, December 16th if you’d be interested in contributing to this installation.
