Humanity: From Survival to Revival is an interactive/participatory cinematic game that merges with a live electro acoustic music improvisational performance on the violin and cello. The work depicts the

transformation of the dystopian state of humanity to utopianism in both the visual and sonic realms by inviting audience participation as part of the performance. Not only do audiences play the characters in a film-like context, but the collaborative efforts are meant to represent saving humanity through collective transformation, healing, and renewal. This work will culminate in a participatory cinematic performance where audiences and live music improvisation synergistically drive the work’s visual storytelling framework.
