The Third Life Project told us three lessons:

  • Staging a real-time video game in a theatrical performance brings up for question and re-examination what is tangible and actual and what is immaterial and abstract.
  • Interactions in virtual environments that are grounded also in physical world enhance intuition of both performers and spectators.
  • Regular online video conferencing meetings afford numerous opportunities to establish the trust and reciprocal understanding, and the respect for different goals, practices, expertise and rhythms of work that are all together necessary for a rewarding interdisciplinary collaboration.
