Shakespeare in Performance
Summer Faculty-led Program
About the Program
The Shakespeare in Performance program will offer a unique opportunity for students to study the historical and literary nuances of Shakespeare’s works while observing international theatre artists. Students will attend performances at the Prague Shakespeare Company and participate in a series of lectures and symposia provided by the company’s dramaturgs, actors, and designers, detailing their processes and how their processes are different from their counterparts in other parts of Europe or the USA. Course readings and discussion will then examine the process of staging these plays through history and in a contemporary, global context, with particular interest in matters of dramaturgy, design, and performance methods.
