The Tempest for our Time by Globetrotting Shakespeare, an international online performance experience of William Shakespeare’s The Tempest. Recording of a Live-Stream by The Streaming Theatre from Saturday, July 11th 2020. This was performed live and live edited together in the moment of the stream! In this moment of isolation, reflection, and transformation, Shakespeare artists across 4 countries and 6 time zones come together digitally to present a live stream performance of The Tempest.
Journeying to Prospero’s digital island are theatre makers representing Shakespeare Napa Valley, Shakespeare by the Sea, Atlanta Shakespeare Company at the Shakespeare Tavern Playhouse, Shakespeare at Notre Dame, The University of Houston, Prague Shakespeare Company and freelance performers throughout the US, Canada, and Europe. Contributions from the event benefit Prague Shakespeare Company’s Summer Shakespeare Intensive, a transformational classical theater training, performance and mentorship program in the Czech Republic that was cancelled in summer 2020 due to the devastating Coronavirus pandemic. This coming together of artists from around the world demonstrates the microcosm of the kind of artistic company PSC creates – uniting a world through the words of William Shakespeare – a vision that Globetrotting Shakespeare and Prague Shakespeare Company both share.
