Attn: Rap Artists - Want To Be Part of The Global Theatre Project?

Bari Hochwald and the Global Theatre Project are getting ready for their next project: the Stratford/Shakespeare Connection. This year the group will be producing a rap ‘happening’ to Prospero’s speech from The Tempest, created by community members (with a focus on youth) and GTP’s artistic team. The event will be video taped and shared at the first Shakespeare Film Festival in Stratford.

The point of the Stratford/Shakespeare Connection is to celebrate and share the diversity of the Los Angeles community both with each other and with the global community. GTP does this by using Shakespeare’s work as a point of inspiration and connection and by incorporating multiple languages into the event. This year’s final video will include footage of community members and artists from Mumbai, India who will be joining in. The event will be open for participation but first they are forming the team of artists that will help shape it. They are looking for rap artists and members of the theatrical community. If you are interested in finding out more please contact Bari at bari@florencetheatre.com.

And if you’d like to get a better idea of what it’s all about, check out the video of last year’s event below. You can also visit theglobaltheatreproject.org for more information.
