No art forms have escaped the influence of Shakespeare’s creativity—and dance is no exception. In the true spirit of Creating Shakespeare
, this program will explore how Shakespeare was interpreted by Chicago dancer Ruth Page, through a combination of film footage, live performance, and commentary featuring choreographers Venetia Stifler and Victor Alexander and dancers from the Ruth Page Center for the Arts
. See Shakespeare’s sonnets, stories, and most famous characters set to motion—through dance.
This event is part of programming related to the Newberry exhibition Creating Shakespeare
, which runs from September 23 to December 31, 2016.
