The Rosetta Theatre Project

Rosetta Theatre Project
Dancz Center in the Hugh Hodgson School of Music

The Rosetta Theatre Project is a unique performance experience structured like an exhibit in an art gallery, allowing guests to come and go at will and experience an immersive, ever-changing theatrical art installment. The project uses live motion-capture technology to present two short scenes, one from Shakespeare and the other from Moliere, on a continuous loop. Each scene will be instantaneously translated into four different versions, two in English and two in French. Using a real-time motion capture system, live performances will be transformed digitally into four different computer animations, each representing a distinct time period and culture: sixteenth century England, seventeenth century France, modern-day Paris, and modern-day Athens, Georgia.
