A Suitcase of Methods is collaborating with the theatre GROB located in Copenhagen on the development of a survey design that has to be tested during the next two weeks. The aim is to test how a 10 minutes one-act play introducing new young playwrights just before the main performance of the evening affects the perception of the entire evening.
We have suggest that
- The scale used to rate the experience is numbered from 0-10 in order to give a more intuitive response. When you give your audience the possibility to choose between 5 descriptive categories, they will often tend to seek the middle.
- The actual experience is described in three words and how they would have liked the evening to be – in order to let the audience use their own language and compare between expectations and actual experience.
- That you not only ask to the experience with the performance but also ask how the entire evening was in order to let the audience separate between what happened inside and outside the auditorium.
We are looking forward to present the results of the survey in collaboration with GROB.
