In partnership with Playwrights’ Workshop Montreal, we are helping to develop two new plays that somehow engage in a conversation with Shakespeare: Thy Woman’s Weeds by Erin Shields and A Boy, His Cockroach and The Bard by Jeff Ho. Check out the public readings of both those plays from October 24-28 at the Segal Centre for Performing Arts. Click here for more info.
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 people before our Shakespeare-in-the-Park performances. These workshops introduce 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.
