A very warm welcome to our new resident William W Lewis.

William is a PhD candidate in Theatre and Performance studies at the University of Colorado Boulder. His research focuses on the impact of media and communication technologies on 21st century spectatorship. He studies performance companies using experimental, postdramatic and devised forms of storytelling that implement digital tools, site specificity, gaming, and locative media.

He is also a practicing director and designer having developed performances in New York, Los Angeles and regionally. In 2015 he wrote and directed an interactive adaptation of Buchner’s Woyzeck using transmedia storytelling and immersive staging. This performance-as-research project was chosen as a Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival regional finalist.
