The first session of the Art Incubator will focus on digital practices, both from a business point of view and an artistic point of view.


As part of the Galway Lab, participants will explore the potential of digital technologies and media in their practice, in how they communicate with audiences, and in how they collaborate with other artists.

The lab will offer participants the opportunity to engage critically, conceptually and through hands-on approaches with interactive digital technologies that respond to, and integrate with, the human body. Using both sensor technologies and VR technologies, this lab will explore the implications of this shift from audience-member to participant and opportunities it offers artists to design new types of movement / physical theatre experiences.

Participants will also explore the opportunities digital media offer to extend their audience reach, and the types of experiences they can offer audiences. The concept of the ‘remote audience’ will be discussed in the context of theatre as a ‘live’ medium. Digital media experts will offer insights into various aspects of audience development through online media, including blogging, live-streaming (e.g. Facebook Live), and understanding social media analytics.
