The new server allowed to increase the productive capacity and the number of complex scenery. The output of images to a larger number of video projectors became possible. It consequently increased the spectacularity of theatrical productions and positively affected the attendance of the performances. v In 2014 virtual scenery began to be used in the productions of "Contrabass" and "Zoykina apartment". As a result, the number of performances in which virtual scenery is used has increased to seven.
The performances with virtual scenery differ from the common ones by the fact that they are a mix of the previous years’ experience of work and modern digital video technologies, thus giving the theater a way to the future. Digital projections look unobtrusive and give the viewer hints rather than reproduce images. In one of the acts of the play "Zoykina apartment" moving geometric figures appear on the scene, evoking associations with the Russian avant-garde of the 1920s, and in another act mythical dragons from the ancient Chinese legends emerge. This all looks spectacular and is very interesting to the audience. This way of using technology makes visitors use their imagination. This technology does not diminish the role of the performers themselves, but sets the leitmotif to the production in which actors can improvise within certain framework. Actors get additional freedom for creativity and demonstrating their talent. The connection of virtual scenery with the production makes them a very effective element from the theatrical point of view.
Performances of the Moscow Academic Art Theatre in which virtual scenery is used:
• The Karamazovs’
• Ideal husband
• Zoykina apartment
• The Master and Margarita
