X-TALK - Theatre and Storytelling in VR


Welcome to X-TALKS! Every second Thursday of the month we invite you to an international meet-up in our virtual venue AREA X.

Not only do we have speakers who share their experiences around new, immersive forms of storytelling with us. You also get the opportunity to meet new people and exchange ideas around our campfire.


Thursday, April 8, 2021, from 8:00 PM to 9:30 PM (CET) Topic: Theatre and Storytelling in VR Speakers: Christina M. Schollerer and Dr Michael Straeubig

Christina M. Schollerer is co-host of the StoryFusion MeetUp in Berlin for innovative storytelling. In 2018, she founded the Berlin StoryDesign.Studio, where she explores and develops story worlds of all kinds - from picture books to transmedia bestseller campaigns. Since 2012, she has been teaching format development and (corporate) storytelling at universities and advising companies on the topic of brand communication.

Dr Michael Straeubig is a systems theorist, dramaturge, game designer, creative coder. As a Marie Curie Fellow at the University of Plymouth, he investigated and designed playful systems. As a computer scientist with a focus on artificial intelligence, he works at the intersection of theatre, XR, games, and AI. He has taught in Plymouth, Lüneburg, and Nanjing.
