Introducing the European Theatre Lab
The European Theatre Lab is Europe’s first think tank devoted to researching a digital strategy for theatre. A pioneering mix of workshops, conferences and theatrical performances across Europe.
Society, media and culture are changing right before our eyes.
In light of this sea change, it is urgent that European state theatres adapt to the new digital landscape of the twenty-first century. The digital shift has unleashed changes in the way that we create, share and monetise all content, including theatrical works.
We need to increase civic engagement by bringing theatre to new audiences and sectors – through instruments such as participatory theatre and new technologies – that break down barriers, encourage dialogue and help Europe’s rich cultural tradition thrive.
