Shakespeare’s Emotions, Lost and Found

17 Nov 2017, 4.30pm - 6.00pm
Place The Other Place, Waterside, Stratford-upon-Avon

This free event, supported by the British Shakespeare Association and organized as part of the UK-wide ‘Being Human’ festival, will explore how emotion is represented in Shakespeare’s plays and what this means to us today.

Join academics from the University of Birmingham’s Shakespeare Institute and theatre practitioners from the Royal Shakespeare Company as they discuss the drama, history, philosophy, theatrical and personal dimensions of emotion in Shakespeare.

Attendees will also have the chance to work with passages from Shakespeare’s plays chosen by members of the panel as part of this interactive event.
