To further the discussion on current aesthetic and progressive theatre forms, Jan Linders, dramaturge and theatre director at Badisches Staatstheater Karlsruhe in Germany, will give a lecture on participatory and digital theatre.

 

He will especially offer a return on experience on the production German-Georgian-French coproduction “Stage Your City”, developed as part of the European Theatre Convention’s European Theatre Lab and on which he collaborated on the artistic concept and the digital dramaturgy.

 

This production is merging the trends of digitisation and participatory theatre. It plays with augmented reality, 360° video, gaming elements and an app-guided city walk. The participatory approach brings theatre directly into the community. In a dystopian fairy tale about a future city ruled by artificial intelligence, the audience is asked to explore their city interactively and make decisions about the question in which world they want to live in 2070.

 

Co-production by CDN Nancy-Lorraine La Manufacture (France), Badisches Staatstheater Karlsruhe (Germany) and Kote Marjanishvilli State Theatre Tbilisi (Georgia)
