    Dear English Teachers

    If Shakespeare were alive today, what technologies would he be exploring? Enjoy this short excerpt from the new RSC production of The Tempest and then watch the technology that made it possible. (I thought this might make for some interesting discussions about whether technology enhances or overpowers drama-or turns it into a movie, where it may become something else entirely?)

    Enjoy, Andrew

    Go on a journey with The Royal Shakespeare Company to Stratford-upon-Avon, home of William Shakespeare, on the 400 year anniversary of his death—and experience The Tempest as never before. Intel, @theRSC, and @imaginariumstudiosUK are bringing live performance capture to theatre for the first time ever and the results are amazing
