Love for Shakespeare

A special performance for a special day. We begin our Shakespearean journey with a staged reading of texts that have stolen our hearts. We’ve fallen for the bard. Have you?

words, words, words...and a whole community of spectators around them eating, listening, hearing, drinking, watching, consuming, enjoying, crying, laughing and living...words...words dreamed up by the Holiest of the Secular, words with colors, textures, nuances, grandeur and misery...words that, despite the alchemy of translation, miraculously survive, with new shapes and new sounds, because these words bear within them the full breadth of emotions, and therefore, all languages...words breathed into life by a single man, a singular poet...words that now belong to all of humankind...words brought back to life by actors that unleash their very essence like the waters of a purifying river, because these words, once uttered aloud, become all possible realities and are imbued with healing power…in ways that are difficult to explain, yet which we all can feel.
