Shakespeare on Location

New deadline for proposals: 25 March 2005
1-4 September 2005 (BSA Conference)

What is the relationship between performance location and play-world
setting?  Increasingly, Shakespeare's plays are being performed in
"alternative" or non-traditional settings, in parks, on beaches, in
forest clearings. In addition, the performance of Shakespeare's plays in
Asia, Africa, South America and Eastern Europe is another aspect of how
Shakespeare's plays are now being performed in an increasing variety of
locations. Issues to be explored may include how these performance
spaces affect audience understanding of the play world and what
adaptation is required for a play to be performed in a particular space.

This seminar welcomes all approaches to the relationship between theatre
location and play-world setting. Please send proposals of 300 words or
less to Reina Green (Reina.Green_at_msvu.ca)
