The University of Birmingham is engaged in an exciting five-year collaboration with the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) at The Other Place. This pioneering project has seen the reinstatement of the iconic RSC studio theatre, The Other Place. Opened in 2016 to coincide with the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, The Other Place is the RSC’s creative hub for rehearsal, training, learning and research.
- The RSC and the University of Birmingham have been exploring how rehearsal room techniques can help deaf young people understand and enjoy Shakespeare.
- As part of their Shakespeare and Creativity MA, students from the University of Birmingham have presented two new plays in response to Shakespeare at The Other Place.
- Shakespeare Institute students talk about their experience of attending a week long workshop with RSC Director Iqbal Khan looking at the provocation "What is a modern history play?"
