Shakespeare's Cymbeline: EcoDramaturgy in Action

Cymbeline in the Anthropocene is an intercontinental network of nine 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 adapt them creatively to local environmental conditions in the hope of opening audiences’ imaginations to new biocentric and biospheric horizons.
