(from the Guardian, 7/22.)
You’ve heard of theatre in the round – but this takes it to the next level. Leicester’s Curve theatre filmed its recent production of Calamity Jane using a special rig placed with the actors. The astonishing results are viewable below, allowing the viewer to sit among the stars as the high-energy musical unfolds around them, in 360 degrees and glorious 4K resolution.
Desktop viewers should use the video below, clicking and dragging to explore the performance. If you’re viewing on a mobile device, you’ll need to view it within the YouTube app (downloadable for iOS and Android, copy and paste this link in the app to view it).
