The Shakespeare-VR project uses virtual reality technologies to bring students face-to-face with professional actors performing Shakespearean soliloquies in a replica of Shakespeare’s Blackfriars Playhouse. Directed by Shakespeare scholar, Prof. Stephen Wittek, the project combines the talents of partners from the Carnegie Mellon Department of English, the virtual reality production company Stitchbridge, the Eberly Center for Teaching Excellence and Educational Innovation, the CMU Center for Digital Sciences, Humanities, Arts, Research, and Publishing (DSHARP), and the American Shakespeare Center. This site provides free access to streaming videos and downloads for all our virtual reality media, lesson plans, and much more!
