Writing Digital Theatre


Writing for Digital Theatre is a practical workshop that will help you write and develop engaging and interesting theatre plays to livestream.

Digital theatre is a hybrid art form and writing for it has its own unique language. This workshop will teach you that writing for Digital Theatre is new way of approaching both the stage and the audience, as they have been redefined for the online media.

Digital writing focuses on the digital audiences to avoid the main issue practitioners are encountering in digital performances, and that is the terrible feeling of them being “audienceless”. That feeling is what gets them labeled “not theatre”.

Enroll in this workshop and learn how to transcreate into this new language.
