Royal Shakespeare Company Teams Up with Google Creative Lab to Perform A Midsummer Night’s Dream In Real Time

From the RSC:RSC

From 21 – 23 June, the RSC will be working in partnership with Google Creative Lab to perform A Midsummer Night’s Dream, in real time across the weekend.

Midsummer Night’s Dreaming is a one-off digital theater project and the 40th interpretation of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, a tale of love, fairies and mischief.

Across Midsummer weekend (21 – 23 June) the play will be performed by an acting company in real time, directed by our Artistic Director Gregory Doran, culminating in a wedding, which you can attend. More information about the live events and the cast will be released shortly.

Meanwhile, the story will be shared through photos, snippets and news stories online from the perspectives of some lesser known characters, as if it was happening in real life. After the event, the RSC will release an audio recording of A Midsummer Night’s Dream performed by the acting company, which will be annotated with content created by commissioned artists and audiences over the weekend and posted on Google+.
