New Technologies in Theater Art

Hello dear friends!
On February 27th, several hours before our meeting with Sofia’s audience, we were happy to present our experience of creating “Treasure Island v1.0” in front of future puppet artists. The topic of the presentation was “New Technologies in Theater Art – Challenges and Perspectives”, and our guests were students from the National Academy for Theater and Film Arts, class Prof. Jeni Pashova – Acting for puppet theater.
It was important for us to draw our young colleagues’ attention to the possibilities that the synthesis of live theatrical play and MR & VR (mixed and virtual reality) technologies reveal. We shared the experience that we gained in this area and talked about details and the specifics of the work in such approach. The discussion far exceeded the time we had planned for it and became an exciting conversation. The feedback we received from our young colleagues was quite useful for us.
Youth Theater “Nikolay Binev” became a partner of the event, and the team of the theatre was so kind to invite us to present our show “Treasure Island” v1.0 in front of Sofia’s audience there.
Great thanks for all of you, who supported us! Thank you friends!
