Storytelling with Code

Michael Rau

Director of Theater,

Michael Rau is a professional director of theater, opera and a creator of new media experiences.


Michael Rau didn’t want to build an app, he wanted to create an experience. So he constructed a physical room, and with the help of a Rails app, created a theater show called “Temping.” He talks through his concept, how he used his new coding skills to make it happen, and the surprising emotional reactions he’s witnessed from audience members who’ve tried his creation.
