The recent COVID-19 pandemic has a serious impact on the cultural sector that is suffering both artistically and financially. Recent surveys demonstrate that theatre professionals (actors, technicians, playwriters and others) are struggling to remain active, relevant and sustain theatrical operations due to the coronavirus pandemic, whose effects are expected to last for the foreseeable future. Moreover, according to these studies, the hindrances affecting professionals and non-professionals ultimately lead to a cultural decline and stagnation, at a time when culture and art are needed more than ever. It is an urgent need to support theatre professionals that face difficulties in the new digital era by developing their skills and competences and increase their capacity in their work. Additionally, it is necessary to raise awareness on common European societal issues through digital theatrical plays and to support non-professional theatre practitioners to benefit from a digital theatre methodology and acquire the skills to continue their artistic work.
Digital Theatre project offers theatre professional and non-professionals the tools needed to transform their art into a digital context by providing an integrated methodology, a complete curriculum, the insight and experience of contextualisation to each partner country, an e-learning course and a comprehensive set of resources.
