Hotel Pro Forma invites technical producers and set designers working in the field of contemporary performing arts and opera to a discussion about the role of technology in the future performing arts. Will new technologies such as virtual reality and 3D projections finally tear down “the 4. wall”?
What are the consequences for the performing arts when the elements of live performance and physical presence of performers are removed from an artistic experience? How does technology empower artistic expressions today? And where may the development of technology lead us in the future?
In the days following the seminar, Hotel Pro Forma will present its recent production NEOARCTIC in Aarhus. More information and tickets here: http://neoarctic.org
