World Shakespeare Festival
THIS MATERIAL IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE
The World Shakespeare Festival is a celebration of Shakespeare as the world’s playwright, produced by the Royal Shakespeare Company, in an unprecedented collaboration with leading UK and international arts organisations, and with Globe to Globe, a major international programme produced by Shakespeare’s Globe. It included more than 70 productions, as well as events and exhibitions right across the UK.
The RSC worked with independent production company Rare Day to produce a series of films for The Space called World Shakespeare Festival Television. Documentary film-makers, video artists and animators provided their own perspective on the Festival, and Shakespeare.
The World Shakespeare Festival was supported by BP, as Founding Presenting Partner, and by the National Lottery through the Olympic Lottery Distributor and Arts Council England.
