The robot theatre lab is a platform for experiments and the exchange of performative technology. The project has started in September 2021, funded by the ‘Creatieve Broedplaatsen’ programme in the Twente region, the Netherlands. See for a collection of projects the following category

The goal of the project is to facilitate collaboration, build up knowledge and develop new ways of using robotics in theatre (and theatre as a development tool for robotics). If you would like to see what we’re up to, you can subscribe to the newsletter (or check out previous editions)

The platform is initiated by Edwin Dertien (Kunst- and Techniekwerk) and made possible through the collaboration with many artists, theatres, performance groups, the municipality of Enschede and the University of Twente.
