Using the spatial audio capabilities of the Cube, this project creates an immersive theatrical experience. Actively engaged in their own exploration of Shakespeare’s garden, small groups of audience members follow a meandering path through the space. As they stroll, audience members hear Shakespearean sonnets and soliloquies performed by Virginia Tech theatre students. The selections are curated and directed by Amanda Nelson, assistant professor of theatre, and Natasha Staley, associate professor of voice and performance. The performance includes sounds of the garden with original music composed by Charles Nichols, assistant professor of composition and creative technologies and a faculty affiliate at the Institute for Creativity, Arts, and Technology.
