Panel Discussion

What is the truly transformative element in moving from theatre to digital theatre? How does the medium transform in a space within which the line between performers and recipients blurs?

In this panel, we want to explore how a new approach to audiences will shape the (digital) theatre scene of Europe and beyond in the coming years. A new understanding of the concepts of and relationships between theatre, audience, performance, and space is what constitutes the digital transformation of theatre as a medium.

The audience is invited to exchange ideas with the panelists about possible future applications of the digital in theatre and about how they want to be involved in its development.
