Five-Company Shakespeare

For five years I co-curated a series of Shakespeare plays with the touring theatre company Missoula Oblongata. We assigned each play's five acts to five theatre companies with varied aesthetics. These acts were assembled "exquisite corpse" style in an undisclosed location. To attend, audience members arrived at a prescribed subway stop wearing red carnations and were then escorted to the secret theatre where they experienced each act in promenade and served with a desert.

The plays we made:

The Tempest (2007)
King Lear (2008-09)
Julius Caesar (2010)
Antony and Cleopatra (2011)
Richard III (2012)
