Sensory-friendly Shakespeare: Shakespeare at Notre Dame is proud to collaborate with the South Bend Civic Theatre on a series of workshops and performances designed expressly for children on the autism spectrum. Building upon workshops held here at Notre Dame in January 2018, this exciting new initiative builds upon the work of internationally-renowned theatre artist Kelly Hunter of the Flute Theatre, whose Hunter Heartbeat practices have produced astonishing results worldwide.
The fall 2018 tour of Actors From The London Stage's new production of Hamlet is now on tour through November 2018! Don't miss the dynamic 5-person ensemble perform Shakespeare's classic tragedy of murder, scandal and the supernatural at perennial favorite universities in Texas, Massachusetts, and Michigan, as well as new locations in Florida, Tennessee, and California.
"Our film is not a response," co-writer/Shakespeare advisor Judith Buchanan noted to audiences prior to Notre Dame's exclusive pre-release screening of Kit Monkman's Macbeth. "It's a quirky, experimental intervention." Audiences at the Browning Cinema were the first in the United States to experience the film, slated for European release in spring 2018. Shot entirely against green screens, Macbeth offers a dynamic new interpretation of the famed tragedy by staging the action entirely within a claustrophobic yet strangely incomplete world, drawing the focus more strongly to the characters' internal strife.
