News   World's First 360° Theatre Recording of Calamity Jane Available to View Free Online, Starting Today
 
The current U.K. touring production of Calamity Jane, directed by Nikolai Foster (artistic director of Curve in Leicester) and starring Jodie Prenger in the title role, has been filmed in a 360° recording that is being made available to view for free online for three days only, July 22-24.



In a press statement, Foster commented, "It is thrilling that our play about a group of pioneers from the 1800s has been filmed in 2015 using cameras and technology even ahead of their time today. I was amazed when I met Tom Mills of VR Web Design and learnt about his boundary-busting work. All of us at Curve and the Calamity Jane team are very excited to be the first to test this new technology onstage." For the best possible viewing experience, modern web browser (latest version of Chrome, Firefox or Internet Explorer) on a broadband connection (4 Mbps or higher) is suggested. On mobile devices, WiFi or a 4G connection is recommended.

The 360° panoramic performance, which allows audience members to choose what they see and from where from the comfort of their own home, can be viewed by visiting 360.curveonline.co.uk.
