Abstract

Melbourne University’s Shakespeare Company presents its Semester 1 production PLASTIC SHAKESPEARE

PLASTIC SHAKESPEARE figures the Shakespearean canon as something that is lustrous, useful and malleable while simultaneously recognising that it can also be non-degradable, garish and opaque. The two short plays within this double bill attack this prompt from radically opposing directions, mining the complexities of what Shakespeare has come to symbolise within contemporary theatre, and building a space for those voices frequently excluded from the white, male tradition of the theatre landscape.

PLASTIC SHAKESPEARE continues the MUSC tradition of reconfiguring Shakespeare in inclusive, interesting and playful ways / staging shows where students can raise their leg and make a mark on the Shakespearean canon.
