Decolonising Shakespeare in A Pound of Flesh (Caliban and Shylock Speak).

Research output: Contribution to conferenceKeynote

Abstract

The paper critically Re-imagines Shakespeare in Performance today in relation to notions of the identities of the immigrant, foreigner, citizen, outsider/insider in contemporary culture. Our production of a new play (A Pound of Flesh; Caliban and Shylock Speak) explores this in script, performance and contemporary and ancient African music forms which is played lived. The production will tour and be performed in historical sites of historical meaning eg. a castle used by the SS, Buchenwald Concentration camp, Robben Island, Gore Island, International Slavery Museum (Liverpool) and others. The link between each historical site and the production is critically explored.
