The theatre game "guignol numérique" by Industry Wizarbox (no longer on their site).
All the artists we know of on this specialty are listed in our Index, with direct link on their Diccan's item. On summer 2014, we list some 20 artists.
We concentrate here on conceptual considerations and the state of the art. The historical development of the field is described, period after period, in our history of digital art.
Computers are more and more used to stage and lighting management. And of course for set reservations and tickets editing. In the 1970's, Early experiences of interactive theater by Kayat and Perec, see our lines in history. In the 21th century, they become quite frequent, more as "special effects" than as a properly digital form of art.
