Digital Innovation in Theatre
International Theatre Conference hosted by Staatstheater Karlsruhe and ZKM | Center for Arts and Media
6-9 April 2017
The international conference “Digital innovation in theatre” investigated a broad spectrum of current issues related to the digitisation of theatre. Initiated by the European Theatre Convention, the conference featured leading digital experts from a variety of cultural sectors. In panel talks, speeches, presentations and workshops, our guests discussed creative possibilities and shared their expertise with theatre makers. The conference also kicked off the EU-wide project “European Theatre Lab: Drama goes digital”.
The conference, held at the renowned Center of Arts and Media (ZKM) in Karlsruhe, was a great opportunity to learn, discuss, network and share experiences. Have a look at the programme and the speakers in the conference brochure and read our blogpost on the field survey on digitisation in theatre that we did amongst the particpants from all over Europe. The results are quite interesting and representative for the situation in state funded European theatres today.
