    Magic Leap


The Royal Shakespeare Company explores the future of theatre with Magic Leap in this sublime production of the "Seven Ages of Man" speech from Shakespeare’s As You Like It. Here they present a mixed reality experience using cutting-edge volumetric capture with Shakespearean actor Robert Gilbert and an original musical score by award-winning composer Jessica Curry. The line “all the world’s a stage” turns literal as users experience the play in multiple and simultaneous places.
