Migrant Shakespeare


Seyyar Company (Turkey/UK)

Think you know your Shakespeare? Think again! This is Shakespeare as you’ve never seen him before – "trippingly on the tongue". Migrant actors take on the Bard, reinterpreting his words in alien environments you will never have imagined before. They give his iconic characters a new life, migrating them into the roles assigned to outsiders by society. Hamlet is a meat-packer, King Lear a construction worker, Caliban a hotel cleaner, Lady Macbeth a housewife looking after children, and Shylock washes the dishes in a restaurant. This is no one Bard: Shakespeare belongs both to no-one and to everyone.
