Welcome to Future Media Theaters.
Future Media Theaters is an international initiative, currently funded by Region Västra Götaland, Sweden to work toward the development of a research centre. Led by faculty from University of Skövde in close collaboration with Folkteatern Gothenburg and Skövde Art Museum, Future Media Theaters brings together partners from industry, academia, and the cultural sector in Sweden, the UK, Canada, Hungary, Austria, Belgium, South Africa, Columbia, Latvia, Finland, Denmark, the Netherlands, and the US who are all working together to investigate and create new forms of performance using interactive technologies.
Our lab-based approach allows us to share our experimental work with the public, and supports our production of both creative performance works as well as scholarship. Our interdisciplinary focus cultivates both new performance works that expand the field of media theatre, as well as creative research in partnership with related fields, such as cognitive science, games, and human computer interaction.
