Assisted by actors and practitioners from Shakespeare’s Globe, Professor Farah Karim-Cooper will guide participants through the richly varied practices and imperatives that frame contemporary theatre performance.

This session combines the seminar and workshop format to explore the range of performance options and histories of performance in the Globe Theatre. Built in 1997 with the express purpose of reproducing early modern performance, the Globe has opened our eyes to the potentiality of the relationship between architecture and the body. We’ll examine the nature of this relationship while focusing on what it means when 21st century diverse bodies come into contact with the complexity of Shakespeare’s texts and theatre spaces.
