Digital Dramaturgy Lab

For those interested in the intersection between digital technologies and performance, a new research group has just emerged from the UofT theatre department, guided by Antje Budde, Associate Professor at the Centre for Drama, Theatre and Performance Studies at the UofT. The Digital Dramaturgy Lab is a creative initiative of artists, scholars, scientists and students in collaboration with the Centre for Drama, Theatre and Performance Studies at the University of Toronto and partners like the Knowledge Media Design Institute at U of T.

Digital Dramaturgy Lab (DDL) investigates in practical and critical terms
• the relationship between digital technology and artistic performance
• the live and mediated performing body
• interactive strategies between performers and audiences
• multidisciplinary creative interaction and creation between artists, scholars, programmers, designers
• in-betweeness, reality, virtuality, queerness, multi-dimensionality
• collisions between structure and form
• socio-political and cultural positioning through inter-media performance and installation
• the critical making of play and game
• cross-disciplinary collaboration, delayed-ness and power negotiations in creative processes – LEARNING
