ACuTe is a trend setting, large-scale European innovation project aiming to revolutionize the way theatre and performing arts are produced and performed with emerging technology and new forms of cultural collaboration and competence development.

ACuTe will be delivered via a strong partnership of 14 leading theatres, universities and creative arts organizations including Ars Electronica, the European Theatre Convention, and Europe’s first Academy for Theatre and Digitality. From 10 different European countries, this consortium will achieve new approaches and models for testing of new technology leading to audience development, co-creation, and capacity development within performing arts and theatre institutions.


The ACuTe consortium consists of 14 members (all beneficiaries) from 10 different eligible countries. Six different work packages and associated milestones will be delivered throughout five project stages by experienced performing arts professionals, external experts and academic advisors from the consortium, the three research partners – The Estonian Academy of Arts, Estonia; Saxion University of Applied Sciences, Netherlands; and Oulu University of Applied Sciences, Finland as well as the theatre network organization – European Theatre Convention (ETC).
