Open Call

Open Call for an Expert in Residence at the Academy for Theatre and Digitality in Dortmund for an interactive and large-scale city game by Slovene National Theatre Nova Gorica

The Nova Gorica city game will use smartphones to send people from two cities who never met before on a mission where they will have to work together to solve a mystery, save the world and get to know something new about their invisible neighbours.

To make this project a success we are looking for an expert who has strategic knowledge and practical experience with large-scale location-based gaming in the public sphere and who additionally has technical knowledge of app development.

The expert in residence will be working at the Academy for Theatre and Digitality in Dortmund for the research & development phase of the project, as well as in SNG Nova Gorica for the implementation and practical phase of the city game. The general time frame is between mid-September 2023 and July 2024. More specific working periods will be defined with the expert.

The deadline to apply has expired.
