The 'Applying Shakespeare' symposium is an opportunity for practitioners and scholars to come together to consider the uses of applied Shakespeare, sharing best practice and considering the impact of new and existing projects.

Shakespeare’s work continues to occupy a unique position within contemporary education, performance and popular culture.  Applied theatre is an umbrella term for a range of performance forms, often in non-theatrical spaces and with an agenda of personal or social change. When these two fields combine, the results can be transformative for those involved. 

Speakers include Dr Sue Jennings, Kelly Hunter, Ben Spiller and Phil Novis as well as papers on topics such as Robben Island Shakespeare, Shakespeare with autistic children and broadcast representations of applied Shakespeare.

There will be short performances from Open Access Arts and Blue Apple Theatre.

This event is organised in collaboration with Guildford School of Acting, University of Surrey, and the Centre for Cognition, Kinesthetics and Performance, University of Kent.Kent_Arts_blkgsa-surreyuni-brandmark
