play the knave

Shakespeare Karaoke! Interactive, Modifiable, Downloadable. What can it be used to study? See Play the Knave and a BBC feature on it.

On 4/11/19, Gina talked about and then Evan demonstrated Play the Knave (virtual Shakespeare theatre karaoke). The interface is both glitchy and inhabitable: one can play with the weird way in which your avatar does not obey you very well, or you can learn to move in a way that the machine (Kinect) tracks you. The latter induces a particular movement style within which you can improvise.
