Raising the Curtain on Shakespeare: Exploring Text Through Spatial Sound and Projected Image

A part of the Digital Humanities Seminar Series

Newman Library, room 124 | Interdisciplinary Events

March 16, 2018 at 10:30am

This talk explores how a group of collaborators, from diverse disciplines, have come together to explore storytelling through technology.  Using the spatial audio and flexible video projection capabilities of the Cube, “Shakespeare's Garden: An Immersive Sound Stroll Through His Sonnets, Soliloquies, and Scenes,” aims to create an immersive theatrical experience for students, faculty, and the public.

The project examines sound, text, and image as separate and combined components of storytelling. Collaborators Amanda Nelson, Natasha Staley, Meaghan Dee, and Tanner Upthegrove will share observations, reflections, and learnings from the creative process.

This project has been made possible through the generous support of the School of Performing Arts, the Humanities at Virginia Tech, the Voice and Speech Trainers Association (VASTA), the School of Visual Arts, the Moss Arts Center, and the Institute for Creativity, Arts, and Technology (ICAT).​
