Digitalization in Performing Arts 
Open seminar for performing arts professionals

Performing HEL 2023 starts with a topical seminar on digitization as a form of presentation, recording and dissemination of performing arts. What kinds of content performances that use digitality in various ways can offer? What kind of expertise and investment does digitalization require from the company? What kind of revenue logic is involved? How can the international distribution of performances benefit from digital platforms and tools? 

The three case studies will share experiences of programming a large VR production, translating a live performance into a screen and how performances are distributed via VR recordings. Speakers include Matilda von Weissenberg (Financial and Administrative Director, & Espoo Theatre), Eero Tiainen (Artistic Director, Love simulation EVE), Iiris Autio (Managing Director, Tero Saarinen Company), Thomas Freundlich (Director/Producer, Lumikinos Production Oy)  and Wilhelmina Sederholm (Head of Production, Second Theatre).
TIME: Thursday August 31 at 16–18 pm
