The Willow Globe: Sharing Cymbeline

By Cymbeline Anthropocene on Jun 12, 2020 at 04:09 PM in Project News

From the Welsh countryside to your computer screens, our collaborators at the Willow Globe theatre are bringing more Cymbeline online. 

This coming Monday, June 15th, the Willow Globe will be hosting a Q&A session on between actor Jamie Wilkes and Welsh history expert Gavin Hooson. Click here to visit the Shakespeare Link website and register for this free event!

For anyone who has ever wanted to try their hand at acting in a Shakespeare play, the Sharing Cymbeline video project offers you that very chance. Willow Globe directors Susanna Best and Philip Bowen will begin by posting short discussions of each act along with possible performance excerpts, and then invite viewers to submit their own videos performing the excerpts of their choice. 

Act one has already been shared to the Shakespeare Link website, and submissions of performance clips for Act two are open until June 30th. Check out the following clips for inspiration, pick an excerpt, and join in creating the magic of Cymbeline!
