DIGITAL THEATRES

Fall 2022

COURSE

DESCRIPTION

What happens when theatres go digital? This course addresses how theatre and performance as live embodied practices and forms of communal encounter have permanently changed due to pandemic restrictions. Together we want to investigate the new dispersed digital formats - WhatsApp and Instagram performances, VR/AR experiences, Zoom Theatres -- that have expanded our idea of theatre. But how do these new networked performance experiences alter common social and cultural functions of theatre?
