As a teaching theatre, the RSC is a national centre for performance, teaching, training, learning and research about Shakespeare and theatre arts.
AUDIENCE OF THE FUTURE
Part of Government’s Industrial Strategy, Audience of the Future is an R&D programme harnessing the expertise and knowledge of 15 specialist organisations including the RSC, leading British arts companies, global technology giants and top British universities.
Together they explore what it means to perform live using technologies such as virtual reality, augmented reality and mixed reality and ensure that the UK is leading the way in how audiences will experience live performance in the future.
