In theatre and film, the 'mise en scène' refers to the 'placing on stage', or arrangement of design and scenic elements. Often this takes places within a frame of a stage or screen, but in XR, the literal frame of storytelling is removed. This session will go through the elements of mise en scène as seen in theatre, and best practices for XR.
