On-Demand Digital Theatre – The Future of Theatre?

160613 - HACT_Image3.jpg

In an age of on-demand TV, music and movies, where does theatre fit? Innovative theatre company Metro-Boulot-Dodo may have the answer with HACT, a digital theatre experiment taking place at ARC until 24 June. Working on the fact that most theatre shows take place in the evening, HACT offers on-demand bitesize theatre experiences that can be accessed by anyone in the venue at any time. These experiences take the form of an audio play that traverses all levels of ARC, and a virtual reality auditorium.

A Place for Arts and Community


Here at ARC, we’re passionate about community.

That might be our local community of Stockton-on-Tees, the wider area of Teesside, or even the North East of England.

It might also be the artistic community of theatremakers, writers and actors who we work with and support.

Our work is rooted in these communities, and we want it to offer value and inspiration, and the chance to connect with the creative arts.
