Lloyd Evans x Shakeslam BTA - 72

“Suit the action to the word, the word to the action”.

Shakespeare. We love him. Or do we? 

Shakeslam is an investigation into adapting Shakespeare for the modern day. It’s about looking at what we love about the Bard, while also asking WHY we’re still putting his shows on 400 years later. From writing new pieces inspired by Shakespeare, to radically re-staging his work, Shakeslam is an experiment in cutting, cropping, remixing and, sometimes, throwing Shakespeare out the window. 

This unit has called upon the second years to be writers, dramaturgs, directors AND actors, with each group curating a variety of new pieces around a central theme. The work you are seeing tonight has sprung from their imaginations; their love and hate of Shakespeare; and the courage to try something new.
