'You have put the wild waters in this roar' The Tempest, Act 1 Scene 1
Perhaps the most memorable element of The Tempest is the tempest itself: the storm that opens the play with the drowning of the mariners.
This winter, join us in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre’s Front of House areas where we'll put the storm into your hands. Through gestures and physical actions, you will be able to "conduct the storm", whipping up waves and creating thunder and lightning.
Head up to the second floor balcony to look out over your watery domain and whip up a tempest worthy of the production itself.
Conduct the Storm has been created by Flying Object, commissioned by the RSC in collaboration with Intel and will integrate Intel technology to help create a more natural, intuitive and immersive experience.
