Global Shakespeares, An Open-Access Digital Video Archive

 

http://globalshakespeares.org

 

Co-founded and co-edited by Peter Donaldson and Alexander Huang 

 

Global Shakespeares is a free, open access collection of performance videos from around the world. We invite you to participate by using this archive in your teaching and research, and by contributing information and visual materials to the archive. Here you can find: 

  • A Brazilian street theatre version of Romeo and Juliet - on stilts
  • A Chinese opera King Lear in which one actor plays Lear and his daughters
  • A Japanese Hamlet who sits motionless on stage. Mechanical dolls enact his thoughts. 

These are some of the innovative ideas in the current wave of breakthrough international productions made available through Global Shakespeares, a large and growing collection of videos from the Arab world, North America, the U.K., Western and Eastern Europe, the Scandinavia, Australia, New Zealand, India, East Asia, Mexico, Brazil, and Latin America.
