Teaching Shakespeare's Plays Through Scholarship and Performance
Theatre for a New Audience hosts K-12 teachers from across the country for "Teaching Shakespeare’s Plays through Scholarship and Performance." This in-depth professional development program uses a carefully integrated approach to explore text-based scholarship, contextual and original source material, language, and performance under the guidance of leading Shakespeare scholars and theatre practitioners. Participants will investigate the theme of the 2022 Institute, “Body Politics: Authority, Sex, and Resistance in Shakespeare’s Plays,” through three Shakespeare plays: Much Ado About Nothing, Measure for Measure, and Othello. The Institute will be held at Theatre for a New Audience’s Polonsky Shakespeare Center in Brooklyn, NY.
