THEatre ACCELERATOR in 2022
With the increased prevalence of the Metaverse and Web 3.0, storytellers in the Spring 2022 THEatre ACCELERATOR explore how these innovative technologies can accelerate new stories, voices and content to reach audiences sooner and shrink the theatrical developmental timeline.
As part of their exploration, teams receive cutting edge technology to assist in their experimentation and investigation along with access to top professionals in the entertainment, technology and investment arenas.
THEatre ACCELERATOR has always emphasized utilizing technology to assist and improve the storytelling process, but this cohort is taking that mission one step further putting cutting-edge new reality tools into the hands of our creators to help artists discover new ways to develop and share musicals.
