About this event

Digital arts collective Squidsoup bring the walls of Watermans to life with a dynamic digital projection made of animated texts and quotes from Shakespearean characters in what promises to be an exciting, interactive encounter for visitors.

Living Wall places Shakespeare in the digital world. Using text-based projection mapping and self-animating visuals, Squidsoup’s display reacts and changes to the actions of passersby, with often playful results. The work blurs the barrier between the virtual and the real world conveying, as the title suggests, the sense that the walls of the theatre have come alive with passages and quotes from some of Shakespeare’s most memorable characters: fools, lovers and malcontents.

Living Wall is adapted from previous Squidsoup commissions from the Royal Shakespeare Theatre (2012) and Salisbury Cathedral (2015).
