Digital theatre has developed rapidly in the past 18 months. What started as an immediate response to the pandemic; a scramble to film shows in empty theatres with an iPhone and stream it on YouTube so as not to entirely lose all hopes of an audience in lockdown, has evolved into a new understanding amongst theatre makers and a discovery with regards to how a digital medium might be used in truly creative way for theatre making.

#DANISH DIGITAL has three selected pieces of work that have either adapted to the point where the digital version is as accessible and enjoyable as the original live performance, or work that has chosen to adopt a “digital first” approach, whereby filmed and streamed theatre and hybrid performances are not a last resort, but a deliberate choice.
