About Stephen Schrum

Stephen A. Schrum, PhD, is a performance poet, playwright and theatre director in both the real world and in the virtual world of Second Life. Notable past RL (real life) productions include: Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night (set in 1995) and Macbeth (performed in a cyberpunk style); Moliere’s The Miser (done in period costume) and The Misanthrope (set in the era of Disco); Sarah Kane’s 4:48 Psychosis (utilizing both the Japanese dance-drama form Butoh and hallucinatory soundscapes that Schrum created). His research area is currently “The Perception of Presence in Virtual Performance,” and he has directed virtual productions of The Bacchae and Prometheus Bound in Second Life (SL). He began teaching with technology in 1993, and since then has been writing and presenting on the topic, including editing the book, Theatre in Cyberspace: Issues of Teaching, Acting and Directing (2000). His most recent scholarly publication can be found in the journal Metaverse Creativity (Vol. 2, No. 2: Dec 2012); the article, co-authored with former student Elliot Sheedy, is entitled “Building A Virtual Reality Model of Artaud's Theatre of Cruelty.” Stephen is also interested digital filmmaking; check out his work on his youtube channel.
