PlayOn! as speaker


PlayOn! is designed to understand, learn, test and apply the potential of immersive technologies for theatre. It was initiated by 9 theatres from across Europe. Furthermore, each theatre has selected one local partner (associated) from the creative digital sector to facilitate access to technical knowledge. The key objectives are to develop new forms of creative storytelling building on narrative structures used in the creative game sector; to merge new storytelling with a variety of immersive technologies; to use these new formats to extend theatre towards the public urban space (immersive outreach) with relevant stories. We have agreed on an overarching topic that will be found in all project phases. “Concrete Utopias in the Digital Age” is the theme, which will guide us towards a serious artistic exploration of vital issues in 21st European society including the challenges and potential for the future. It perfectly combines the interactive, immersive and democratic aspects of theatre and immersive technologies.

About the talk: PlayOn! is co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
