DACL is a creative collaboration researching the intersections of digital design, the emerging technologies of Augmented Reality (AR), Virtual Reality (VR), and creative storytelling with theatre and performance.

DACL was founded by  Beth Kates of Playground Studios  who serves as its artistic director.

Focusing on practice-based experimentation with artists, technologists, academics and other community members, DACL seeks to explore the state of digital creation tools and digital dramaturgy as they relate to live performance.
