ZED.TO: ByoLogyc’s 20th Anniversary

There’s only a few days left for ZED.TO’s Indiegogo campaign and the team behind Zed have been up to some fun things already. Did you know that ByoLogyc just turned 20?

As for the party, after a short period of mingling in the Ingram Gallery with staff and trying out products, Chet arrived with Diva Capricia as his ‘special guest’, who gave a chilling performance of “Ebben? Ne andro lontana” from Catallani’s opera “La Wally” to help set the mood for the evening. I can’t say I’m a fan of opera, but after being chilled to the bone by Capricia’s live performance, I had to research the song and find out what story it was that she was performing. The discovery did not disappoint.

That was only the beginning of the night, however, as more drama unfolded throughout the party – including a minor brawl with the bartender, and the removal of the contracted media coverage team for asking too many questions. And sadly, Capricia was the one left behind at the party as Chet took leave early – with Olive Swift on his arm.

I’m looking forward to their upcoming events at the Fringe in Toronto and their Patient Zero project at Nuit Blance.

ZED.TO: An Immersive Narrative Experience

ZED.TO – an immersive biotech adventure from Trevor Haldenby on Vimeo.

ZED.TO is a really cool project that is exploring the boundaries of modern entertainment by simulating the destruction of the world over eight months. They’re in the middle of their IndieGoGO campaign and just announced that they’ve added some more treats to people who fund them.

This project looks to be inspired by everything from interactive theatre to alternate reality games to the concept of gamification.

From their project description:

ZED.TO is an attempt to make theatre more relevant in the age of digital media. We want to use the tools of interaction and immersion to turn audiences into participants, and bring them into the story.

Immersive theatre has been around for years, but we feel that particularly in Toronto, its potential has not been fully realized. Unlike most other immersive productions, ZED.TO lets you have influence on the story. You’ll have the ability to make moral decisions that affect the story and events in real-time. Read this post on our blog for a more thorough discussion of our motivations.
