StageJam #4

June 4 to 10, 2023

Over the course of the fourth StageJam eight artists spend an entire week exploring the theatrical potential of online tools and immerse themselves in the platform Gather Town. The central focus of this artistic research is the development of short theater and performance formats that take place within the virtual spaces of Gather Town.

The StageJam takes place online and decentrally. We will provide a Discord server for communication, exchange and collaboration. In addition, we will provide invitations to online networking formats during the week to let you get to know the work of the other artists and groups. A continuous documentation of and reflection about the process will be supported through daily questions.

At the end of the week, a stage test will take place as part of the showcase Figure It Out: on June 10, 2023 at 3:00 pm (CET), the formats that have been developed will be publicly presented and tested.


Since 2021, Schaubude Berlin has developed the format of the StageJam and is thus extending its artistic research to digital space. StageJam #4 will take place in conjunction with Figure It Out. Showcase and Conference for Figure Theater.
