Creating new generation's theatre in the digital age
10 - 15 February 2020
Digitalization has reached all areas of art by now. But what does this imply for music, theatre, the music-making, singers and performers? What is the artistic expression potential of the new media or the AI? How do our sound possibilities and ways of playing change, but also our ideas of sound? Does digitalization mean the end of all subjective expression and free interaction? What is the innovation for you?
The first part of this workshop is dedicated especially to research.
How exactly do new media influence our perception? How does this change our way to experience theatre? What does this mean for young artists who are creators and performers? What kind of media are we able to use to artistically transfer the changes of human communication and behaviours to an artistic level?
During the workshop the participants shall try to form artistic teams and start working together.
The last day of the workshop is dedicated to present the first drafts of concepts for mini operas (10-15 minutes).
The workshop is organised by the Theaterakademie August Everding in cooperation with the Young Opera (JOiN) of the Staatsoper Stuttgart and will be mentored by:
