Act 2 of the prospective reflection on the performing arts in 2050: what will be the future of the performing arts venue? The issue is crucial for artists and audiences: what will be the transformation of venues in the face of the new challenges of creation and dissemination, and what will be the inclusion of audiences, as well as the impact of digital technology and the ecological imperative?

The performing arts venue in 2050. The public space rather than the closed place? The virtual place as a complement to the real place? The third location in preference to the institution? From permanent to temporary venues? From the season to the festival, what temporality of place? In short, should we deconstruct the place, get out of it?
