The newly launched Globetrotting Shakespeare presents an international online performance experience of William Shakespeare’s The Tempest. In this moment of isolation, reflection, and transformation, Shakespeare artists across 4 countries will come together digitally to present a live stream performance of The Tempest for our Time.
Journeying to Prospero’s digital island are theatre makers and artists representing Shakespeare Napa Valley, Shakespeare by the Sea, Prague Shakespeare Company, Atlanta Shakespeare Company at the Shakespeare Tavern Playhouse, Shakespeare at Notre Dame, and The University of Houston. The actors will be participating remotely, and the event will be live streamed through thestreamingtheatre.com.
TICKETS: Free, PLEASE DONATE WHAT YOU CAN at https://www.pragueshakespeare.com/support-psc.html. Help meet a $35,000 goal!
Contributions to the event will benefit Prague Shakespeare Company’s Summer Shakespeare Intensive (SSI), a transformational classical theater training, performance and mentorship program that takes place each summer in the Czech Republic. Due to the devastating Coronavirus pandemic, the 2020 SSI program and 12 PSC international productions were cancelled, resulting in a devastating artistic, educational, and financial loss of over $450,000.
All of the artists featured in the Globetrotting Shakespeare's The Tempest for our Time represent international theater leaders, directors and actors, who have all worked for Prague Shakespeare Company. This coming together from around the world demonstrates the microcosm of the kind of artistic company PSC creates – uniting a world through the words of William Shakespeare.
This one-time performance will launch at Twitch: https://www.twitch.tv/thestreamingtheatre and on on The Streaming Theatre https://thestreamingtheatre.wixsite.com/home/livestream
