„The creation of specific narrative patterns for VR experience is a field of unexplored potential for authors or directors, and the literariness of VR content will orient itself towards novels than with drama.“
Marcus Josef Weiss
CONSIDERATIONS about the DRAMATIZATION of “The Fall” (AUTHOR’S STATEMENT)
- The 360° stage version examines the dramatic potential of spatial interaction.
- The protagonist’s tightly wound mainspring gains expressiveness (potentially), when the character Johannes Clamans – male in the original context – is reconceived as a female character.
- We call her: Johanna Clamans, a former star attorney in Paris, living at the Place Saint Michel, after a traumatic experience which destroyed her perfectly staged, bourgeois self-perception she takes cover in a high-class brothel, aiming to follow her new mission: to uncover double moral standards. A character with unusual and very high potential for conflict.
- The inexcusable nature of one’s own guilt and the chosen mechanism of self-humiliation imposed in order to avoid the reflection of the delusional, narcissistic male world, seems to me to be a fascinating and surprising idea, which lends many areas of the story an interesting topicality, without affecting its content or emotional expressiveness.
