About the event

In this course, participants will experiment with and learn in this growing field. By developing a short work, they will explore the opportunities and challenges that digital theatre presents to its makers. They will learn technical skills, integrate movement, dance, music and acting within digital settings. The 'digital' aspects of Digital Theatre requres performers and technicians to work in perfect harmony, aiding and supporting one another to create a totally immersive piece of work.
