APP Theatre@Home release on AppStore and Google Playstore Sept 16th 2021.
Bring the fascinating world of grand opera to your kitchen table with Theater@Home! Virtual introduction to Wozzeck at the Staatstheater Kassel.
"Wozzeck - Mord im Staatstheater" is a virtual theatre experience on the kitchen table. The App Theater@Home brings the fascinating world of grand opera to the kitchen table. The app for Android and iOS places 3D avatars of the singers from Wozzeck by Alban Berg as well as the head dramaturge Kornelius Paede and his play introduction live in the camera image of the smartphone: opera on the kitchen table, in the café or in the queue. A digital invitation from the theatre to the audience at home.
This fascinating digital experiment, which aims to develop new virtual recording methods in the theatre, is a first cooperation between the Staatstheater Kassel and the media artists and developers Chris Ziegler, Holger Förterer, Nikolaus Völzow and the stage designer Sebastian Hannak. Selected scenes with the singers of the Staatstheater Kassel appear wherever the smartphone camera detects the theatre's season logo as a marker. To do this, you can use the first page of our free season booklet or print out the PDF file on DIN A4. With the opening production of Wozzeck from 24 September 2021 under the new artistic direction of Florian Lutz, the digital experience will interlock with the real performance.
