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

Shakespeare: From Page to Stage

2016 marks the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death yet he still remains one of the leading figures of contemporary theatre, regularly performed and watched by people all over the world. Why is he still so influential? How do contemporary theatre directors and academics approach presenting his work in performance, and why?

In conversation with Shakespearean academics and directors including Dr. Miles Gregory (Artistic Director, Pop-up Globe, Director Twelfth Night), Ben Naylor (Director Romeo & Juliet) and Tom Bishop (Professor in English Drama & Writing Studies) we explore Shakespeare as presented in contemporary society. Each of these speakers, a Shakespeare veteran in their own right, will share their knowledge and experience in Shakespearean text and the process of bringing Shakespeare's plays to life in the space for which he wrote them.

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 Heminge 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. Visit our website for more information on the other shows and events hosted by the 2016 Pop-up Globe Team.
