World Shakespeare Festival 2012

September 6, 2011

BBC NEWS:

An “unprecedented gathering” of global performers and artists is to be revealed later today as part of the World Shakespeare Festival.

Next year’s festival, produced by the Royal Shakespeare Company, is part of the Cultural Olympiad, a series of artistic events for the 2012 Olympics.

Festival director Deborah Shaw has said it will explore “tectonic shifts in society” through the bard’s plays.

Performances will take place both in London and across the UK.

The festival, which is also part of the Cultural Olympiad’s London 2012 Festival, will run from 23 April to 9 September and celebrates Shakespeare as the “world’s playwright”.
