“In jest, there is truth.”
― William Shakespeare,
You remember when Dorothy went to the ‘Land of OZ’, or when Alice fell down that rabbit hole?……
Yeah. Well that has just happened to me.
I have been exploring the world of Immersive Telepresence in Theatre, using visual immersive anthropology techniques and this is just a summary of what I encountered and felt this week….
While lost in the madness of Lear.
I find myself meeting two groups of Theatre students, that are rehearsing Shakespeare’s: King Lear. Rehearsals take place over a telepresence screen and a window of communication is opened between two countries that are 1554.6KM apart.
This happened between students from the University of Tampere, Finland & Coventry University, UK.
But it is so much more than this…..
