Welcome at the website of the Researchgroup Virtual Theatre. We are part of the Research Centre for Theatre Making Processes at the Faculty of Theatre of the Utrecht School for the Arts. In Dutch this research Centre is called Lectoraat Theatrale Maakprocessen. Read more…
Our research group is interested in the interplay between creative making processes and interactive digital technology. We research this topic through LABs, Projects and the development of our own system called The Performance Engine (scroll all the way down this page to see a video presentation we did at Centraal Museum Studio). We try to share our findings through workshops and so-called performance lectures.
The MAPLAB is subject in the 15th episode about Art and New Media of the television series called “Kunstlicht Next”. A series used in cultural courses for highschool education.
For more info see the website of SchoolTV:Kunstlicht Next.
Have a look at the episode, this program is entirely in Dutch. The MAPLAB part is from 8:20 min onwards.
