“Every day we are presented with world stories through news feeds on multiple platforms. We are confronted with the atrocities of civil war, the consequences of forbidden love, betrayal and power – these challenges of the human condition all shared in Shakespeare’s plays.

To Be Today by Brendan Dawes captures news stories and frames them in Shakespeare’s words by matching the text written centuries ago with a beautifully crafted algorithm using today’s technologies. As the Royal Shakespeare Company explores new ways to interpret Shakespeare, this work shares the connections with our past and the present – the players, the characters, the plots and the observations captured in Shakespeare’s writing connect with us today.”

– Sarah Ellis, Digital Producer RSC.
