ROYAL THEATRE OF TURIN: FEDORA EUROPEAN DIGITAL PRIZE, 2020

Client: European Funds

Project Name: ROYAL THEATRE OF TURIN: FEDORA EUROPEAN DIGITAL PRIZE, 2020

Project Type: Interactive Stream Machine installation for graphics, music and merchandising

When and Where: Suspended project for the Covid-19 pandemic

Stream&Music is an interdisciplinary project developed by Teatro Regio di Torino in collaboration with Streamcolors.
Using the Stream Machine software, created by Streamcolors and developed on the basis of Epic Games’ Unreal graphic engine, a new interactive platform will be created:
– to transform into abstract art what happens on stage by projecting real-time graphics in the area surrounding the musicians. The Teatro Regio will be equipped with an innovative tool able to enhance the musical language with a new, interactive and visual language;
– to provide the foyer of the theatre with an immersive room allowing the audience to discover and share the contents of the theatre in a new way processing photos and videos;
– to create custom merchandising to purchase. The experience will give space to the creativity of the audience allowing them to interact with the digital software to create their own images to be printed on merchandising objects thus creating their own unique and personalized object.

The goal is: to involve everyone as co-creators offering the public a total experience and an engaging performance able to reach new targets.

The Stream&Music project is among the finalists of the Fedora Digital Prize category. At the end of March it won the public nomination as it was the project that received the most votes (2008) on Fedora, the international online platform dedicated to innovation for theatres.

The winner will be announced when activities resume after the Covid-19 pandemic, probably in the fall.
