The ACADEMY FOR THEATER AND DIGITALITY is a model project of the Theater Dortmund, focusing on digital innovation, artistic research, technical education and training. Together with the Academy's staff, students investigate the various possibilities of digital technology within the performing arts.

The principal aim is to research how digital technology can be applied in a meaningful and sensual way, and how the performing arts can benefit from digital transformation through, for example, the use of sensors, robotics, virtual and augmented reality, artificial intelligence etc. Ultimately, students explore how these technologies might be implemented on and around the stage.
