Who We Are

What is The Virtual Stage?
We are a theatre company dedicated, among other things, to the application of emerging technologies in live performance. To support and enhance storytelling, our group of theatre, film and high-tech professionals integrates technologies such as computer animation, cinematic projection and digital sound into the theatrical experience. We challenge the border between theatre and film with new media, incorporating a new script writing form, new staging practices and a unique developmental process for the stage -- facilitating the arrival of an exciting and inevitable art form: The Virtual Stage!
