Digital Shakespeares Lecture #3: “Immersive Shakespeares: Live Performance, Virtual Reality, and Audience Experience”
D.J. Hopkins, Professor, School of Theatre, Television, and Film at 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).
Co-sponsored with the SDSU Center for the Study of Media and Performance.
This event is part of the Fall 2021 virtual programming co-organized by the DH Center and DH@SDSU. Our Fall 2021 calendar is intended to support and enhance teaching and learning with events geared towards intellectual recovery and the refreshing of our sense of community. Towards that end, we offer book talks by authors of recent, cutting-edge digital+humanities scholarship, tools refresher workshops, and collaborative brainstorming sessions about what DH– and especially DH @ SDSU– means after a year+ of learning online.DH Events
