ELEMENTS OF OZ was co-produced by Peak Performances @ Montclair State University (NJ) and was developed in residence at the Alexander Kasser Theater, Montclair State University.
The Augmented Reality tools for this production were developed in partnership with the students and faculty from Carnegie Mellon University’s IDeATe program and the School of Drama with additional support from The Center for the Arts in Society. The IDeATe program supports curricula and research in areas that blend technology and arts expertise. Its activities are housed in Pittsburgh and in the new CMU@NYC site in Brooklyn. The CMU Integrative Media program in New York City is part of the NYC Applied Science Initiative.
This program was made possible with support from public funds provided by the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, and the New York State Council on the Arts.
Venue support for this project was provided by 3LD Art & Technology Center, BRIC, and the A.R.T./New York Creative Space Grant, supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Special thanks to The Performing Garage.
