Do you know of any good books on immersive theatre/site-specific theatre?

Asked by Anonymous

bloodwillhavebloodtheysay has a good list, but my absolute favorite book on immersive theater is Immersive Theatres by Josephine Machon. Very thorough. It was a huge help to me when I was directing an immersive show last year.

Have you made many friends off of tumblr? I feel like I've been on tumblr for a long time but haven't made internet friends like some people have

I have made some lovely, irl friends on this website. I will say though that it took years to actually meet some of them in person, for various reasons.

Worst fanfic idea ever: Sleep No More coffee shop AU. Hecate is always making people cry into their lattes, Boy Witch is hitting on all the customers (except Agnes), and you don’t want to know what’s in those delicious turnovers Barragan makes.

Anyone interested in helping a PhD candidate out with research?  She’s using SNM as a case study on her thesis. Here’s an excerpt-

PhD Thesis: ‘Participatory Acts: Is the success of Sleep No More evidence that the net has changed narrative?’

Broadly speaking the purpose of this study is to investigate the impact of new technologies and emerging media practices on contemporary content producers and audiences. Whereas a significant amount of research on this topic has featured film, television and games as case studies this study aims to extend and test this research by applying it to a live performance based case study: the Emursive production company’s presentation of Punchdrunk’s Sleep No More in New York.

I think this ought to be brought to the SNM fandom’s attention.  There is currently an indiegogo project about people who have made it to NYC from the Columbus, Ohio area.  I know that doesn’t have much to do with all of us.  But what DOES, is that our beloved Erik Abbott-Main is involved.

Or you could just watch this video 10 times in a row?  (Because I totally did NOT do that.)

On a related note, Mr. EAM is also showing an excerpt of his work on the 16th and 17th.  Maybe someone could go for me and hide in a corner somewhere?  (More info:

Thanks to snmsketches for the greatest depiction of Erik Abbott Main as the Porter during “Is That All There Is?”!  This was my favorite scene, and reliving it in anyway is just fantastic.

How do commissions work? Do I have to wait for a flash commission? Are the pieces all original? Do you paint an actual picture that gets sent to people? Sorry for all the questions!!

Asked by Anonymous

Hi Anon! To answer your questions:

1. No, you don’t have to wait for a flash sale… you’d be waiting a while. Feel free to send me a private message if you have a commission in mind!

2. Yes, all pieces are original.

3. I usually draw/paint digitally and send high-resolution images to clients via email. The deal is that I don’t share commissions on my personal blog until given permission by the client, or until the client blogs the image themselves.

However, I am totally open to doing something in a different format, it just won’t look exactly like what you see on my tumblr! I can also send a physical print of a digital painting, which we would factor into the cost of the commission.

Let me know if you have any other questions!
