Modern technologies gradually find their place in the theatrical environment and are used not only in the stage set design phase, but also in the productions themselves, winning more and more attention of viewers.
The theater of the future faces the challenge of intelligently incorporating digitalization processes while at the same time re-emphasizing the audience's attention to the sacred atmosphere that reigns during a live production. Theater has every chance of becoming a reflection of our digitally saturated world without losing its true age-old purpose: to explore relationships, conflict and society through play.

Discussion points:
• What is the theater of the future like?
• How not only to not lose, but to strengthen the identity of theater in the digital space?
• Can "digital" bring all forms of art to life?
• How not to lose an artist behind high technology?
