A.R.T. was founded in 2008 by Sodovan Torok and Ada Radius and now consists of 21 actors, directors, playwrights and designers, most of whom have extensive real life experience. Actors use Second Life Voice to accompany avatars of all shapes and sizes. Sets, costumes, scripted objects and props, animations and avatar designs are created by company members. The options for creativity allow for innovation beyond the possibilities in real life. Some presentations have streamed on the internet and machinimas (cinema + machine) are in the works.
