Abstract

This study focuses on supporting theatrical performances. A system that supports actors learning their acting orders has been already proposed. The system detects actors’ speech and cues the next actor to speak. It can however only respond to speech, despite the fact that movement is a very important factor of theatrical performance. Thus this paper proposes to include moving action for cueing the acting order. The evaluation showed that the proof-of-concept prototype system decreased the incidence of both order mistakes and speech mistakes. The findings of this study confirm that the system can efficiently support theatrical performance practice.
