Immersive Shakespeares: Live Performance, Virtual Reality, and Audience Experience
A talk by D.J. Hopkins, Professor, SDSU

The Digital Shakespeares lecture series has been asking questions about what we do with bodies, spaces, texts, and technology in the 21st century. Shakespeare is the ideal medium for such questions. This third and last lecture shares ways in which Shakespeare’s plays have been authorizing new modes of live and mediated performance for more than 125 years. Hopkins considers the interrelationship of live performance and new media in immersive Shakespeare experiences, with examples drawn from live theatre (Sleep No More) and Virtual Reality (The Under Presents: Tempest).

The Digital Shakespeares lecture series is co-hosted by the SDSU Center for the Study of Media and Performance and the SDSU DH Initiative.
