  Shakespeare's Garden: An Immersive Sound Stroll  
(Music/Theatre/Dance)

Visitors are invited to come any time during open hours to enjoy this installation - an immersive sound stroll through Shakespeare sonnets, soliloquies, and scenes.

Using the spatial audio capabilities of the Cube, this project creates an immersive theatrical experience.

Audience members follow a meandering path through the space. As they stroll, audience members hear Shakespearean sonnets, soliloquies, and scenes performed by Virginia Tech theatre students. The selections are curated and directed by Amanda Nelson, assistant professor of theatre and Natasha Staley, associate professor of voice and performance.

The performance includes sounds of the garden with original music composed by Charles Nichols, assistant professor of composition and creative technologies and a faculty affiliate at the Institute for Creativity, Arts, and Technology. Visual elements augment the aural experience with projection design by Meaghan Dee, assistant professor and chair of Visual Communication Design in the School of Visual Arts.

This project has been made possible through the generous support of the School of Performing Arts, The Humanities at Virginia Tech, the Voice and Speech Trainers Association (VASTA), the School of Visual Arts, the Moss Arts Center, and the Institute for Creativity, Arts, and Technology (ICAT).
