horizon in the theatre arts. Analysing some examples of contemporary creations in performing arts from Romania and other countries, it highlights different types of creativity through specific scenographic choices, dramaturgical compositions and spectator’s involvement, which break the tradition and draw a new horizon of scenic and performative experiences thanks to the intelligent use of new technologies and virtual realities. The directions targeted are aesthetic, professional and following the evolution of the act of reception.
