“Coriolanus”

Location is wheelchair accessible
The Coriolanus production process forwards Theater Studies’ core mission: to unite critical inquiry with embodied exploration and creative endeavor. Coriolanus emerges as the culmination of Models for Performance Creation: ReMaking Shakespeare, a fall semester production seminar. Participants in the course approached Shakespeare’s text as a vigorous reworking of classical sources (Plutarch and Livy) and studied the play’s history of adaptation (by Nahum Tate, Bertolt Brecht, and Ralph Fiennes, among others). The ensemble has applied the fruits of this research process to their own, highly physical rendition of Shakespeare’s Roman tragedy, bringing the play’s central dynamic – the collision of prideful egotism with collective anger – into connection with the contemporary moment.

By William Shakespeare. A senior project for William Smith and Jesse Kirkland, directed by Daniel Larlham and Timmia Hearn Feldman.

Part of Shakespeare at Yale, a semester of special events celebrating the Bard.
