How are new media and theatre related? How to use lighting on the stage and how is the viewers' experience of theatre performance influenced by lighting design? How to synchronise light with live music and what is 'time code'? These and many other questions will be answered by top contemporary visual designers Marshmallov Laser Feast (UK), Frieder Weiss (DE), Nick Moran (UK) and others at the conference THEATRE 3000.
