Historical Movement Archive: Hope Bear Garden Research and Design

The Historical Movement Archive has used emerging 3D technologies and developed a process and methodology to integrate the historical record in text and images with archaeological excavation evidence to recreate in digital form this 16th century playhouse called the Hope Bear Gardens.

Our work at the Historical Movement Archive offers the possibility of using these emerging augmented and virtual reality technologies to teach, research, and perform online in 3D. The emerging technologies we are working on will soon give us the ability to take the experience of any class or performance into anyone’s home or office to be viewed in three dimensions as if we were in the classroom or witnessing a live performance.


For the first time in history, modern technology is offering us the ability to preserve the movement depicted in antiquarian books and manuscripts. Motion capture technologies allow us to take movement and preserve it in a three dimensional digital form.

We can recreate and interpret the historical and cultural movement in digital form, so that it can be preserved, studied, archived, and shared all over the world.

It is a “Gutenberg moment” for historical movement and movement research.
