On Tuesday, the Google Cultural Institute announced a new partnership with 60 performing arts institutes around the world to bring a 360-degree virtual, live performances to on-line audiences. Think of it as Street View, but instead of buildings or shopping complexes, you get to view performances from the American Ballet Theatre or Carnegie Hall or the Royal Shakespeare Company. Just as you might poke around neighbourhood corners on Street View, with Google’s technology, you can creep up behind a violinist, hover above Henry V during a monologue, even zoom in to explore every brush-stroke on the theatre ceiling.
