Session Name:

'To Be With Hamlet': Recreating Theatre's Intimacy in VR


In this talk, the production team behind 'To Be With Hamlet' will explore the technological and aesthetic considerations behind performing Hamlet live in a detailed, multi-user virtual reality environment. Attendees will learn how the team simultaneously utilized 3D scanning, photogrammetry, facial motion capture, and real-time skeleton-streaming technology to fuse theatre's sense of intimacy with virtual reality's powerful sense of immersion. The project's director will also share how he learned to direct live performance in VR and create a world that enabled audience members to both explore the environment and engage with the story.
