As part of Shakespeare Week
Shakespeare is the symbolic heart of British culture but who owns Shakespeare?
Do we need a multicultural Shakespeare? What obstacles do performers from minority communities face today: why do talented black artists need to find their way to Hollywood? And what do the screenings in this season – from Britain, America and India – tell us about Shakespeare’s relevance or redundancy to our twenty-first-century world….. or should that be ‘worlds’?
With a panel of experts led by Jatinder Verma, Artistic Director of Tara Arts and director of tonight’s Macbeth.
