Captivating audiences around the world, the performing arts are hailed as a platform for creativity and expression. With a focus on dance and theatre, the EU-funded PREMIERE project aims to modernise the field by using advanced digital technologies that will support the whole life-cycle of performances. Project work will lead to the development and validation of a comprehensive ecosystem of digital applications, powered by leading-edge artificial intelligence, extended reality and 3D technologies, to meet the needs of communities involved in the main stages of the life cycle of performing arts productions. Ultimately, project work will enhance the understanding, preservation and enjoyment of and accessibility to performing arts.
