Afellowships scheme to explore the use of technology in theatre has been launched by the Royal Shakespeare Company, aimed at “pushing the boundaries” of storytelling.
The fellowships will focus on three areas of expertise: creative, which can include performers and designers; narrator, which can include writers and dramaturgs; and technical, which can include coders or people with skills in different immersive technologies.
The scheme is being run in partnership with American technology company Magic Leap.
Each participant will receive access to Magic Leap’s technology and expertise, as well as the RSC’s theatrical knowledge, with the aim of producing a research and development project to be shared in 2019. Participants will also be paid travel and accommodation costs and will attend workshops, briefings, field trips, events and sharings.
