  • Brief Description

    The analogue world offers opera and theatre unlimited possibilities. With performing artists, music and design, the most varied realms of experience can be conjured on an empty stage in the here and now. But what new (virtual) spaces can be explored by incorporating the digital dimension? The Komische Oper Berlin (KOB) and the Berliner Ensemble (BE) are interested in developing artistic formats that merge new technologies with the classical elements, capabilities and resources of theatre and opera. To this end KOB and BE are calling for proposals, of which the winning submission will be realised as part of the Spielr ume project. The proposals submitted should be artistic projects that create new formats of theatrical experience in a sustainable and innovative way using digital technologies.

    A production budget of € 120,000 (gross) is available for the winning proposal.
