A project examining how British and Irish theatre companies have used digital technology in the past five years, and how this process changed during the COVID-19 pandemic. This project will determine the extent to which decades-old practices and theories in mediatised performance studies apply to digital theatre today. In addition, this project will highlight the impact of digital technology on audience interaction and critical reception in modern performance.
