A group project inspired by the play “The Taming of the Shrew” by Shakespeare.

Orvieto is a tactical bordgame on a digital ‘board’ incorperated in a table on a stage. Four players battle to get out of their boring village ‘Orvieto’ their pawns represent characters from a play that is visible on screens above the table. The moves made by the players in the boardgame directly determines what happens in the little animated theatre play.
