DEBATE: NEW DIGITAL SCENARIOS FOR THE LIVE ARTS


The use of audiovisual technology as a stage language has a long way to go. For years, and even more so after confinement, we have had easy access to recordings of plays, opera in cinema format, video dance pieces, and so on. The pandemic and restrictions on capacity have led to new exhibition formats and media, such as the creation of exhibition platforms associated with theatres and festivals. Face-to-face, necessary for the live arts, takes on a new dimension with the acceleration of new transmedia stages where streaming opens the door to new possibilities for live art. The question now is whether the advancement of the digitization of the performing arts is a concrete response to a context of restrictions on attendance or will it have continuity in the future. Coinciding with the presentation of the work of the Talent Pact project, we will reflect on the continuity over time of this new scenario for the audiovisual.
