Chiara Lagani participates in the international symposium Intermedial Shakespeare on European Stages organized by the Central School of Speach & Drama

In the last twenty years, new technologies have transformed theatre practice, leading to exchanges between digital and non-digital media in performance. This aspect of intermediality has been particularly influential in performances of Shakespeare in Europe, which may suggest that his plays lend themselves exceptionally well to digital treatments. This issue will be closely examined during the symposium.

Intermedial Shakespeare on European Stages: An International Symposium

Presented by The Research Centre for Intermediality in Performance at Central

To mark the culmination of a Marie Curie Fellowship at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, Dr. Aneta Mancewicz has convened a one-day symposium, open to the public, to address the practice and theory of intermedial Shakespeare performance, with a particular focus on European theatre after 1989.
