BREAKDOWN 2022(Post)Digital Communities of the Independent Scene
For many years, independent groups and artists in the performing arts have been acquiring (post)digital skills and integrating them into their artistic practice. The use of digital technologies and (post)digital ways of staging has significantly changed the way those theatre formats are developed and received. The different artistic approaches and working methods are as diverse as the independent scene itself.
The BREAKDOWN programme series makes it possible to deepen the transfer of such ways of working and to strengthen the visibility and networking of artists among themselves. The format is aimed at interdisciplinary artists from the independent scene who intensively deal with (post)digital practices such as creative coding, software development, interaction design, physical computing, XR design and game design in their artistic work.
Under the programme leadership of the media and performance group OutOfTheBox, practice-oriented network meetings invite participants to share needs, challenges and ideas for work at the interface of theatre and digitality and to participate in the development of new communities of the independent (post)digital scene.
