The Auroville Theatre Group is planning to celebrate Shakespeare’s 400th anniversary on Saturday, April 23rd by revisiting scenes and monologues from the 5 plays that have been performed in Auroville: The Tempest, Hamlet, The Merchant of Venice, Twelfth Night and Romeo and Juliet.
Any Actors from these plays who would like to participate – if I have not contacted you yet – please get in touch with me !
Accompanying these moments there will be music and dance which were originally created for the plays. We also would like to share some of what Sri Aurobindo has said about Shakespeare in his writings, in particular from The Future Poetry and Letters to sadhaks.
In addition, if anyone has a favorite monologue from any of Shakespeare’s plays that they would like to present to the audience, please contact me. It would be a great chance for you to honor the Bard and share in the celebration!
