19th - 22nd January 2017
Rogaland Teater, Stavanger
It was an absolute pleasure to be invited to Stavanger in Norway by the Rogaland Teater from 19th to 22nd January. Director Peter Hussey and actors Caolán Dundon and Evan Lynch attended the pemiere of Rogaland Youth Theatre's production of Macbeth, directed by Rolf Alme. There they spoke with Rolf (pictured left) at a pre-show event looking at the way our separate cultural traditions influence the way we stage and receive Shakespeare (with particular emphasis on the relationship of young people to the works). They also facilitated a day's workshop with neighbouring secondary schools on staging Macbeth in English.
During the event Caolán and Evan performed scenes from 'Macbeth' in English.
Rogaland Teater is a partner of Crooked House in their European youth theatre network, with whom we have collaborated on a number of international theatre activities.
