Shakespeare and Montreal – New Play Development!
In the Fall of 2016, we partnered with Playwrights’ Workshop Montreal to launch a call-out to writers to propose an idea for a new play linking Shakespeare and Montreal… Stay tuned for a chance to hear/see these two new works in the Fall of 2018!
Since 2011, Repercussion regularly partners with IPLAI (the Institute for the Public Life of Arts and Ideas) and the Early Modern Conversions project in various ways.
We hold workshops for professionals each year, and can also organize workshops for school groups. We engage participants in exercises that explore Shakespeare’s language in a playful and accessible way.
Since 2014, Repercussion has worked with Geordie Productions to create and animate workshops for young peopel before our Shakespeare-in-the-Park performances. These workshops introduced participants to the playful poetry of Shakespeare through fun exercises, ultimately culminating in a chance to interact with the performers of that night’s show!
In 2015/16 Repercussion’s Amanda Kellock animated pre and post show discussions when the Segal Centre for the Performing Arts brought the Globe-on-Screen to Montreal. Shakespeare’s Globe is a reconstruction of the theatre in which Shakespeare actually worked, and offers a rare glimpse into the world for which Shakespeare originally wrote. The Globe on Screen is an initiative that allows audiences around the world to enjoy these critically-acclaimed productions from the comfort of a cinema seat.
