Department of Performing and Digital Arts (DPDA)

Founded in 2019, the Department of Performing and Digital Arts (DPDA) is part of the School of Arts which was founded in 2003, with the simultaneous establishment of the Department of Theatrical Studies (DTS), of the University of the Peloponnese, based in Nafplio (Greece). The coming of the DPDA in the map of tertiary education of Greece aims to explore the hybrid intersections of performing and digital arts. In particular, DPDA Undergraduate Study Guide aims to nurture and promote knowledge in scientific, artistic and technological subject matters concerning the performing arts placing emphasis on their dynamic connections and relation with various cultural aspects, social applications, technology and education. DPDA constitutes the first academic department in Greece, which focuses on emerging/hybrid approaches of contemporary art and research, ones that deal with the dynamic intersections of performing (performance, dance, theatre) and digital arts (digital performance, virtual reality, interactive/digital media-technologies).
