Since its birth, the stage art represented by theatrical performance has been far more dependent on presentation forms and dissemination media than other kinds of artistic expressions. Since the 20th century, with the rapid development of science and technology and new media, the digital construction and dissemination of stage art has gradually become a new trend in the development of performing arts. Especially in the context of the covid-19 epidemic, contemporary theatre is not only a creative space for directors and actors, but also a comprehensive creative space that integrates lighting, materials, sound effects and other elements, and the role of technology in stimulating the vitality of stage art in the post-epidemic era is increasingly prominent. In this paper, we will start from the history of digital development of stage art and combine it with actual cases, to analyse its future development trend.
