Let’s face it, the past year has been a bit rubbish.

However, we think there is something rather exciting in the way theatre changed dramatically to embrace the digital sphere.

What does this mean for the future of theatre? What lessons can we learn? 

The Future Project is a series of 8 weekly emails formed of interviews with those who’ve been at the forefront of theatre’s new digital frontier. Interviewees include Lyn Gardner, Dante or Die, Coney, Pigfoot Theatre and more.
A free resource for artists, theatre makers and anyone interested in digital theatre, accessibility, interactive theatre,  and sustainability.

Sign up to receive a weekly email (starting 3rd August).
