Shakespeare is not meant to be read in a classroom, it should be said out loud, played, and experienced!
All kids in England study Shakespeare at school. Think it’s boring? It’s time to think again. To help teachers bring Shakespeare to life and engage their students, Samsung partnered with the Royal Shakespeare Company to create an interactive and immersive Android app: Shakespeare as you’ve never experienced it before.
RE:Skakespeare is a playful deep dive into the universe of Shakespeare’s and the play “Much ado about nothing” – on and off the stage – bringing the past forward, and together classic and technology.
We used the language of theatre in the settings, the videos are shot inside what resembles a rehearsal space, a 360 video is shot on the actual Royal Shakespeare Company stage, while we selected a palette of bright, digital colours and bold font treatments in the rest of the app interface.
