People & Power in Shakespeare
Sat 12 March 2020, 2pm - 6pm
The UnDisposables is a female-led theatre collective with a mission to create accessible, exciting and challenging opportunities in the arts.
Since bursting onto the scene in March 2018, it has staged thirty short plays as part of a series of sell-out new writing nights, commissioned four full-length plays, and produced critically acclaimed productions of The Wasp by Morgan Lloyd Malcolm and The Jailer's Daughter by Esther Joy Mackay at the Space, where it is an Associate Company.
Your world and your climate are struggling under the weight of humanity, but your leader is a tyrant, blind to the forces of nature working against him.
The power is there for you to take, but it is not yours by right.
And yet, you seem to be the only person in the position to take action.
What do you do?
The UnDisposables return with their first production since becoming an Associate Company of the Space, this time with their politically charged production of Julius Caesar.
Drawing parallels with the modern day issue of climate change, their production delves into the moral ambiguity within Shakespeare's classic text, questioning who has the right to power, and by what means can or should power be achieved?
