The Most Magical Midsummer You Ever Dreamed
“…to create a production that will lead the way in the use of digital technology, connecting with new, younger audiences and inspiring the theatre of tomorrow …”
Shaping the future
A ground-breaking project, melding state-of-the-art technology with traditional theatre techniques to retell classical stories in an exciting and imaginative way.
“...our first steps towards creating a new theatre experience for the digital age...”
We are experimenting with ways to see how the technology in our pockets can be incorporated into a show to enhance viewing experience
using infra-red sensors combined with other technology, we aim to create the scenery and magic in real-time – rather than pre-recorded projection which has thus far been used in theatre. The projection will react to actors moving around set as it happens, live
We are developing ideas and technology so that audience’s experience of theatre begins as soon as they purchase their tickets, right through to a post-show experience. We want to use technology to create a more immersive, engaging and imaginative experience
We are currently developing a ground-breaking production of William Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’, that will engage younger audiences and develop a more sustainable future for the theatre and for ‘The Classics.’ The production will experiment with augmented and virtual reality to enhance our theatre experience. Midsummer has some of the most beautiful imagery and exciting magical moments in literature. We want to use digital technology to push the boundaries of where the play has gone before. Using the latest technology in projection mapping, face recognition and real-time projection, we will create a production of Midsummer that is visually striking, imaginative, magical and immersive.
