Theatre has always been a pioneer for the development and application of new technologies, it is a place for artistic and technical innovation, experimentation and research.
How can immersive technologies such as virtual and augmented reality unfold their potential in front of, behind and on stage - as a creative design tool, as a construction aid for virtual building rehearsals, as a teaching and learning space, or as an extended stage for the arts?
