English Shakespeare Company International Summer Colloquium 1998

For two weeks 13-26th July some of the leading thinkers and
practitioners in world theatre will gather at the Tyne Theatre and Opera
house, home of the English Shakespeare Company, in Newcastle, England.

The aim of the conference is to debate the future of Shakespeare, on
stage and screen within contemporary and historical contexts. Michael
Bogdanov, Artistic Director of the company, will lead the colloquium.
Stephen Berkoff, Patsy Rodenburg, Simon Callow and Mike Alfreds, all
internationally known British theatre practitioners, have already agreed
to take part and invitations have gone to many others across the world.

During the two weeks of the colloquium, it is our intention to open up
practical areas of the plays for exploration and discussion, framing
Shakespeare in a modern global context. How do we ensure that the plays
will be preserved for popular consumption in fifty to a hundred years'
time? With the speed with which the English language is changing, is
there a danger that soon only an ultra educated elite will understand
the texts? Is film the way forward? How do we modernise, radicalise and
yet preserve?

This is an intensive programme of debate, practice and masterclass, with
the opportunity to witness the final stages of rehearsal for the
company's two new productions: 'Antony and Cleopatra' and 'As You Like
It' which will be opening the Bath International Shakespeare Festival in
August.

The colloquium is designed for scholars, students and theatre
practitioners. ESC is also running a summer school for 16-19 year olds
from 13th - 26th August.  A range of tariffs apply, either full board or
registration fee only. Anyone going to the SAA in Cleveland can talk to
me there, otherwise, for further details, telephone (00 44) + 0191 222
0710, FAX (00 44) +0191 222 0712, e-mail
