A 2-day HAPPENING for PERFORMING ARTS professionals

Proposed by French Tech Grande Provence, together with the Festival d'Avignon, in partnership with Dark Euphoria and the Grenier à Sel, with the support of the Région Sud, the City of Avignon, the European programs Interreg Alpine Space and STARTS, Performing Arts Digital Stages invites professionals of the performing arts to question and explore the issues related to digital transition and innovation.

Closely linked to societal changes, artistic practices echo the on-going digital transition we have witnessed in recent decades: technical tools brought on stage, augmented live performances, digitization of cultural content…

The health crisis that has severely impacted the cultural sector has accelerated this phenomenon. Often suffered, but also embraced by many artists and programmers as an opportunity to renew creative processes and relationships with audiences, the closure of cultural venues has opened up new avenues for artistic content, new “digital stages”.

The deployment of these hybrid and digital artistic forms is disrupting cultural programming and the relationship between artists, stages and audiences. In the face of these changes, it is essential to initiate a more structured reflection, to share and perpetuate good practices and to articulate these innovation processes within artistic projects and cultural policies.

This 2-day inspiration and discovery journey, of digital artistic experiences, debates, and targeted encounters for professionals, has been designed to facilitate the networking of best practices and enrich the steps undertaken. It also aims to guide professionals in their digital transition: digital stages, hybrid formats, interaction, immersive devices, participative performances, performances on social media, etc.
