The European Theatre Convention has set “Theatre in the digital age” as one of its pillars for the years to come. By researching and experimenting with digital technologies, the goal is to enhance the theatrical live experience
as well as to offer a meaningful reflection of its possibilities and boundaries.
European Theatre Lab
2016 – 2018
The two-year applied research project European Theatre Lab set out to research a digital strategy for major European state-funded theatrical institutions with the goal of expanding access to the arts via new technology. This cross-sectoral project united artists and public theatres with research institutions and researchers from the fields of technology, science, and the media and performing arts.
The first ETC casebook Digital Theatre. A Casebook is about sharing knowledge with the creative community; it is an invitation for artists, scientists, theatre professionals, and cultural and societal decision makers to learn from our experiences. Attached, the white paper Drama goes digital vs Theatre invades digital presents recommendations that have been identified for publicly funded theatres, policymakers and funders on the local, national and European level to tackle challenges for theatres while addressing the digital transformation.
