Shakespeare and the Future of Interactive Stories

This session will look at the future of theatrical storytelling in a world where content is increasingly being delivered via the Internet. It will share some of Ravensbourne and The Royal Shakespeare Company’s pioneering online projects and focus specifically on an innovative educational series, which began with Tim Crouch’s play I, Cinna and has continued with live streamed productions into schools viewed by over 55,000 UK schoolchildren. It has since evolved into a programme that will further push the boundaries of online delivery for theatrical content. The presentation argues that screen narratives are entering an era where the data-oriented culture of the Web will become increasingly influential in shaping story form and content. In particular, the latest Internet standards, including HTML 5 and Semantic Web implementations, allow Internet content delivery much greater integration between audiovisual, textual, and social elements.
