I teach

Theatre and Multimedia - undergraduate course at the School of Media and Arts (DAMS) - The course wants to provide a wide angle survey about the relation between virtual reality, cyberspace, artificial intelligence and theatre performance.

Procedural Drama - postgraduate course in New Media – The course illustrate different typology of synthetic agents and artificial characters in virtual storytelling and interactive drama.. I discuss a number of key concepts in virtual storytelling, from narrativity to cross-media, from interaction to believability. All along the course I make specific references to playwriting techniques.
