How can modern digital technologies help theater-goers “see” actors’ feelings? Can actors convey their emotions without words? Neural interfaces and biosensors make it all possible. The participants of the Experimental Interactive Design Summer School studied how modern technologies can be used in theater. The school was organized by Tallinn University, ITMO University’s Creative Lighting Department, and the New Stage of Alexandrinsky Theater.
For a long time, light was only seen as a functional element of everyday life. Over time, artists have begun to study its properties, the ways it can accentuate shapes and textures. In the 20th century, it became its own “character” in art, architecture, theater and performance art. Caty Olive, a light designer and artist from France, spoke about the history of people’s relationship with light at a lecture in St. Petersburg. The event took place at Alexandrinsky Theatre’s New Stage, supported by ITMO University’s Higher School of Lighting Design.
The media art festival MediaIN took place on the new stage of the Alexandrinsky theater from 14th to 16th of July.
