Studio for Electronic Theatre is a platform for research, production and education in the field of digital performance. We use ‘electronic theatre’ in its broadest sense, to refer to diverse forms of performing art practices (theatre, dance, music…) that involve creative use of digital technology and physical computing.
Studio for Electronic Theatre is currently based in London, at the University of Greenwich, working with an international and interdisciplinary team, consisting of theatre makers, musicians, dramaturgs, digital artists, dancers, visual and sonic artists, engineers and scholars.
Our primary area of research is physical computing in performing practice and design, involving digital scenography, live visuals and sound, and real-space interaction between ‘physical agents’ (e.g. live performers, acoustic instruments, stage props…) and digitally generated content.
SET’s productions have been performed and exhibited internationally; in, amongst others: London (Tate Britain, Institute of Contemporary Arts, Queen’s House, National Maritime Museum), Cambridge (Cambridge University Concert Hall), Newcastle (Culture Lab), Amsterdam (STEIM), Berlin (La Giraffe), Sarajevo (SARTR War Theatre), Belgrade (VUK), Novi Sad (Serbian National Theatre) and Bologna (ifsARTS).
