Twitter + theater: Reorbit launches today

Reorbit, an experiment in social media theater, has launched today. What does that mean exactly? The project hopes to enliven an audience excited by theater and literature by utilizing new media technology.

Writing in real-time, the characters use Twitter as a channel for interacting with a wider audience online. What would Kafka say in 140 characters? What would a modern-day Sylvia Plath tweet about? Social media will play a role in an actual real-time written performance of a character.

Get started by following Samuel Beckett, the Big Friendly Giant (from Roald Dahl’s classic The BFG), and Behemoth, the black cat from Mikhail Bulgakov’s The Master and Margarita on Twitter.
