Shakespeare Meets Us....

After the suspension of all participating productions in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we are excited that performances are returning in 2021. Our next scheduled Cymbeline peformance is the opening of the Montana Shakespeare in the Parks season on 16 June.

Please follow our blog and social media for continuing activities, new production updates, and commentary.

Shakespeare's Cymbeline: EcoDramaturgy in Action

Cymbeline in the Anthropocene is an intercontinental network of ten site-specific productions of Shakespeare’s tragi-comic romance, Cymbeline. Each production will seek to uncover past and present ecological values in the play’s vibrant range of stories, emotions, and terrains, and to relate them creatively to local environmental conditions in the hope of opening audiences’ imaginations to new biocentric and biospheric horizons.

SAA 2021: Reflections on “Ecology and Pre-Modern Critical Race Studies”

SAA 2021: Reflections on “Ecology and Pre-Modern Critical Race Studies”
By Cymbeline Anthropocene on May 20, 2021 in Cymbeline and the World

After last week’s post examined “Performing Shakespeare in a Time of Ecological Crisis: A Global Roundtable Session,” the Cymbeline in the Anthropocene wanted to highlight one more session from the Shakespeare Association of America’s 49th annual conference, which took place at the beginning of April. Chaired by Kim Hall, “Shakespeare Futures: Ecology and Pre-Modern Critical Race Studies” eschewed a conventional panel structure to create an innovative, jointly-authored collaboration between four scholars. To echo the collaborative structure of this important presentation, Cymbeline in the Anthropocene’s discussion of it is presented as a conversation between project leader Randall Martin and graduate researcher Rebecca Salazar.
