The articles are well written with a good range of images. The Border Art project is very interesting from a participatory drama model, and certainly enters into a very contemporary new media art paradigm. The Shakespeare article is interesting from the perspective of the way the group have gone about shaping characters and performance and drawing upon dialogue triggered scripts for animations and other events within the play. Anyone interested in inworld performance should pay at least some passing attention to these articles.
