Intel helped create a digital avatar live on stage at The Royal Shakespeare Company. It took over three years to bring the technology to the stage, enabling the avatar to perform Shakespeare’s Ariel, a spirit- like character who shapes and shifts depending on his emotions. The technology Intel deployed was incredibly ambitious—a true world first. Live motion capture and projection of facial expressions has never before been achieved in theatre. Real-time data from a motion capture suit and rig were mapped to a complex digital avatar. That avatar was morphed and transformed into many different characters throughout the performance and then projected through 27 different projectors on stage. This live projection required immense amounts of processing power, which would not have been possible without Intel technology. Intel custom-built a processing stack for this project. The result was a dream-like world that was constantly transforming in front of the audience’s very eyes.
Campaign Description:
Intel and The Royal Shakespeare Company collaborated on the world’s biggest theatre stage—The Royal Shakespeare Theatre—to demonstrate how technology can push the boundaries of creativity in the performance arts.
