‘Shakespeare and Race’ is a two-day event organised by Shakespeare’s Globe and the University of Sussex. It will focus on the performance of race on the Shakespearean stage, as well as the racial dynamics in play when Renaissance plays are staged today. Theatre practitioners, educationalists and academics will reflect on the intersection of performing race with religion; eroticism and exoticism; stagecraft; acting and directing; and other subjects. We aim to build on the success of the Globe’s ‘Shakespeare and Race’ season (summer 2018) and expand the range and diversity of our understanding of the dramatic canon. The event will be of particular interest to theatre audiences and theatre practitioners, school and university students, academics, and teachers.
