Informal webinar


This is an invitation to participate at the Immersive Lab for Innovation in Theatre and Archive (ILITA) webinar on the 19th of Feb. 2021.

We are interested in gathering a new network of creatives, festival presenters, theatre makers, thinkers, producers and academics working at the junction of the performing arts and immersive tech across Europe and beyond.  We are interested in hosting discussions on the work itself, platform and technology choices, shaping narratives and relationship with audiences in real-time experiences.


We invited several speakers, each of whom will present a 5 min. presentation related to their work.


The ILITA webinar is organized by Nordisk Teaterlaboratorium - Odin Teatret and co-presented and facilitated by The Performance Corporation - Jo Mangan (IRL), Makropol and the XR Black Box - Mads Damsbo & Jakob la Cour (DK), with the support of The Arts Council Ireland and Danish Statens Kunstfond.
