How is Shakespeare being re-imagined for our digital age?

Join Sarah Ellis, Head of Digital Development at the Royal Shakespeare Company, and Dr Erin Sullivan, Senior Lecturer at the University’s Shakespeare Institute, for a discussion about recent adaptations of Shakespeare that have looked to new technologies for inspiration. 

From The Tempest and 3D performance capture, in collaboration with Intel and The Imaginarium Studios, to A Midsummer Night’s Dream and social media, and even Macbeth and internet shopping, find out how the digital world is influencing our modern experience of Shakespeare.
