Shakespeare continues to inspire creative storytelling and sparks the imagination no matter where the stage. One of the more interesting presentations during the 2010 Best Practices in Education conference was one given by Joff Chafer on Virtual Performance.
After explaining some of his own theater projects, he was joined by the Second Life theater troupe to demonstrate how they go about staging their version of The Tempest to live audiences. Taking on the challenges and limitations of the environment - while exploiting the benefits - the intrepid players appear to also be enjoying the creative process of bringing new 'virtual' life to the classic.
