Galatea Workshops

We invite scholars to participate in exploring John Lyly’s Galatea at the Jerwood Space this August. The award-winning theatre maker Emma Frankland and Andy Kesson will be working with a company of performers, exploring the play’s representations of non-normative sexuality and its concluding investment in transgender identity. We are grateful to Shakespeare Bulletin, the University of Roehampton and the Before Shakespeare project for funding and supporting this work.

Scholars are invited to participate in this exploration by joining us in the performance space in two- to three-hour slots, available throughout the week (11am-1pm, 2pm-5pm). Scholars are welcome to come as witnesses to the workshop, to document it or to take a more active role and join the performance workshop itself. The workshop is a week-long process of theatrical research and development and is not building towards a final performance at the end of the week.

The workshop will take place 1-5 August. For further information, and to book a slot, please email andy.kesson@roehampton.ac.uk. For anyone interested but unable to attend, we will be documenting the week’s work on  the Before Shakespeare website.
