Using the Sprint Methodology in 
Art and Theater

We believe and have experienced that the sprint methodology works very well for a cross functional organisation like where theater producers, puppeteers, artists, researchers and technical experts co-create. 
We have defined quarterly themes that are tackled in bi-weekly sprints once every Friday. For the year 2023/2024 we will be working on robots interacting with artists and puppets, movement by robots, and robots on stage as decor-builders or being the decor.
