The second of three in the Shakespeare in Conversation series of free public panel discussions, presented by Pop-up Globe in association with Auckland Libraries:

Raising the Second Globe Theatre

Why, for over 150 years, have practitioners and academics recreated the Globe theatre time and time again? Why do so many theatre lovers spend their lives dreaming of working in such a remarkable space? What is it about the combination of architecture and the playwright’s words that creates such a magical world?

In this session we investigate how and why this unique construction has endured the test of time to remain one of the most legendary performances spaces in history. Focusing particularly on Shakespeare’s second Globe Theatre, audiences will hear of the ground-breaking research from Shakespearean academic Tim Fitzpatrick (Associate Professor of Theatre at Sydney University), whose research into the second Globe Theatre is the basis for the dimensions of Pop-up Globe. David Lawrence (Artistic Director, The Bacchanals and Associate Director, Twelfth Night) will be joining the panel discussion to share his experience on this remarkable project, including its construction, layout and performance space.

This series is brought to you by Pop-up Globe in association with Auckland Libraries, home to New Zealand’s lone copy of Shakespeare’s First Folio, one of only 233 in the world. The Folio is the first collected edition of Shakespeare’s plays and was bought in 1894 by Sir George Grey specifically for the library. Originally published in 1623 and compiled by Shakespeare’s former colleagues John Heminges and Henry Condell, the Folio contains 36 of his Comedies, Histories & Tragedies.

The venue for this event is the Whare Wananga Room, Level 2, Central City Library, 44-46 Lorne Street, Auckland City.

Capacity is limited and places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis, so arrive early to secure your seat.
