This workshop aims at the conception of communication-strategies for historical and future theatre architectures and their digital implementation in physical, augmented and virtual spaces. Augmented Reality is not a technological fad, but will change our media landscape permanently. It opens up new ways of experiencing content in spatial systems, it creates new approaches and levels of communication. The technology must be understood as independent media with different mechanisms, visual languages and formal necessities.
On the occasion of the European "Sharing Heritage" year, we are asking which potentials digital tools such as AR can generate in the museum and theatrical context and how the accessibility to im/material "theatre objects" can be improved. Specific theatres in Berlin are at the centre of the investigation (to be defined). Historical objects in theatre collections and archives, such as drawings, photos, models and audio tracks, tell us today about theatre architecture and theatre stories. With the help of AR, these are to be brought to life. Current topics and, above all, future visions are to be made tangible to the audience.

In interdisciplinary teams, various conceptual ideas and their prototypical realizations for digital and interactive services in AR are developed. The workshop teaches how augmented reality can be used to create narrative spaces.
