Speaker: Clayton Stromberger

 

Abstract:William Shakespeare, such an iconic figure around the whole globe, was a player first. When he began writing his own plays, he used that player’s instinct to write juicy roles for each of his friends. When we play him, we connect in a direct way with the player’s spirit that first animated these imaginary worlds.Through playing out the plays, we can gain new and valuable insights into the heart of Shakespeare’s theatrical genius. His works go from being two-dimensional objects, imagined in a solitary theater of the reader’s mind, to being three-dimensional lived experiences, created in collaboration with others and shared in real time. This approach can offer an endless source of discovery.
