Client: Théâtre de l’Union

Project: Richard III, Loyalty Binds Me Role: Creative Consultant and Producing Partner

In 2013, in collaboration with Fusebox Festival, University of Texas at Austin and Théâtre de l’Union, FuturePerfect organized a two-week residency to begin researching the technical and performance language of a new adaptation of Richard III by French director Jean Lambert-wild. Our team set out to advance the technical and artistic challenges of centralizing software, face and body tracking, computer vision, and live-animation as an important strategy for conveying narrative, creating emotional impact, and constructing the mise-en-scene. Apart from the many technical issues, the residency focused on coordinating the look and feel of Richard III, Loyalty Binds Me, working on the piece’s narrative structure, and acting styles that worked effectively with the live animation system.
