digital.DTHG at the summer concerts Volkenroda

Save the date: We will celebrate the premiere of the VR installation “Spatial Encounters” on August 27, 2021 at the summer concerts in Volkenroda!

In this digital experiment, musicians and audience alike become actors, creating a shared encounter space in virtual reality (VR).

This year, the barn at the Thuringian monastery will become a digital playground for musical-virtual encounters. Through the movements, proximity and distance of the actors, visual sceneries, moods and spatial sculptures are created in virtual reality, which the violinist David Wedel interprets musically. But who is actually reacting to whom here? Are we creating a new kind of musical encounter together? What potential do new technologies like virtual reality have for the musical experience? Try it out!

6 sessions of approximately 20 minutes each for 6 actors, VR goggles provided. Dates and booking: or at the ticket office on site.

A project of digital.DTHG, the competence area for digitality and new technologies of the German Theatre Technology Society, within the research project “Im/material Theatre Spaces”, funded by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media.
