Shakespeare On The Move
This event is based on a series of lectures and workshops that I presented in New York City for the 92nd Street Y. During the session, we will read aloud selected scenes from two Shakespeare plays and then screen several film adaptations of those scenes.
The first play will be Macbeth; we'll look at excerpts from film adaptations by Orson Welles and Akira Kurosawa. We’ll concentrate on Act I, scene vii and Act III, scene iv.
