Digital Futures

On Tuesday morning I had the pleasure of a second meeting with Fiona Lindsay and some of the team from Digital Theatre. I don’t know if you have heard about Digital Theatre but basically it is a digitisation project which makes live theatre available on line with a range of supplementry materials also available. This is of interest to individuals but also invaluable for schools and other educational institutions.

Great idea!

But even better Fiona and the team believe that the pleasure of live theatre should be available to all just as we feel strongly that Shakespeare’s works in all their incarnations are also for everyone. The teams from The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust and from Digital Theatre have met twice now to discuss potential ways to work together and since we share a vision of inclusion we hope this will be a happy partnership it is certainly one we look forward to exploring together as The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust looks into ways of creating it’s own exciting on line content…

Watch this space… and while you are at it, you too can meet Fiona from Digital Theatre.

    Look forward to hearing more about this exciting project!

     I keep fingers crossed so that the cooperation would turn out mutually beneficial, and at the same time theoretically speaking this initiative will, may have consequences for reception theory and practice. In other words I wish you good luck for shaping history!

    A fan of Digital Theatre!  Their film of most recent RSC AYLI is excellent and a marvellous record of the show
    now that it is no longer here [though I am seeing it again in New York]  Didn’t Fiona do interviews [very well]
    for RSC at one time?
