2018 ART: EDU: Immersive theater in OpenSim: Scenes from Antony and Cleopatra

Immersive theater in OpenSim:  
Scenes from Antony and Cleopatra

Outworldz presents a beautifully choreographed scene from Shakespeare play, performed by bots (in OpenSim we call them Non-Player Characters--NPCs).  The lines are delivered in text.  A group studying the play could assign group members to deliver the lines aloud. 

Antony and Cleopatra is a tragedy by William Shakespeare. The play was performed first circa 1607 at the Blackfriars Theatre or the Globe Theatre by the King's Men. Its first appearance in print was in the Folio of 1623. -- Wikipedia
