United Kingdom & North America – Introduction

January 21, 2010

Written by Peter S. Donaldson, MIT

This archive provides global, regional, and national portals to Shakespeare productions within a federated archive; you can view and study productions within and across cultures. As we build the archive, we have focused on performance records and videos from the Arab World, Asia, Brazil, and India.

This archive is intended to promote cross-cultural understanding and serve as a core resource for students, teachers, and researchers. We have included videos from a select number of performances produced in the United Kingdom and North America for comparison purposes, though these videos are so widely available elsewhere that we have focused instead on other cultures, though we are delighted to include them here as well.
