FRIDAY 8 - SUNDAY 17 MAY 2015

YORK INTERNATIONAL SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL


DIARYAT THE BACK!

WELCOME

A WARM WELCOME FROM THE FESTIVAL’S DIRECTORS

YORKTHEATREROYAL.CO.UK

01904 623568

As early as 1610, Shakespeare’s Pericles, and possibly his King Lear, were performed near Pateley Bridge. The history of performing Shakespeare in North Yorkshire therefore dates back to Shakespeare’s own lifetime. This long tradition now finds vigorous new expression in the York International Shakespeare Festival (known to its friends as ‘YorkShakes’). Emerging from an ambitious partnership between York Theatre Royal, the University of York and Parrabbola, and drawing in many other regional, national and international partners, YorkShakes is a major new venture for York and for the North, and a proud member of the European Shakespeare Festivals Network (ESFN). Our launch festival is packed with variety. Whether you’d like to see Northern Broadsides’ King Lear directed by Jonathan Miller, or be present for a foot-stomping Romeo and Juliet; catch a Shakespearean opera or see a visual record of Calibans across the ages; experience a silent film of Hamlet or hear Shakespeare talks from eminent academics; meet a Spanish-speaking puppet who’d like to be Hamlet or see an acclaimed Japanese actress perform Lady Macbeth, we have something for you.

The European Shakespeare Festivals Network produces new and interpretively innovative productions, develops projects with and for local communities, supports new translations and research and facilitates genuine artistic and educational exchange internationally. The Prince H project on our programme represents a first major shared education initiative across European festivals. YorkShakes? With your help, we hope it will. Enjoy the festival!

Silents Now presents

Opera Restor’d in association with Hand Made Opera

PYRAMUS ANDTHISBE A comic opera by John Frederick Lampe Early opera specialists Opera Restor’d make a welcome return to the stage with their acclaimed production of Lampe’s Pyramus and Thisbe. A mournful moon, a cowardly lion, an unruly wall and two bumbling Roman lovers: Shakespeare’s comic reworking – in A Midsummer Night’s Dream – of Ovid’s story is one of the best-loved comic episodes in theatre. Set the ill-fated love story to Lampe’s late Baroque music, parody the pomposity of the day’s Italian Opera with all its divas, and the result is a scintillating early English comic opera full of musical and theatrical fireworks. “Unpretentious charm, musical rigour and aesthetic honesty” The Times

FILM&OPERA

HAMLET: DRAMA OF VENGEANCE starring Asta Nielsen (Germany: dirs. Svend Gade and Heinz Schall, 1921) Gala screening, with a score composed by Robin Harris Performed live by Robin Harris and Laura Anstee Screening introduced by Professor Judith Buchanan (University of York) Hamlet not just performed by a woman but Hamlet as a woman? The sheer daring of the film’s central premise is as brilliantly pursued as it is entertaining and the film constitutes a remarkable moment in the performance history of Hamlet. In 2005, a colour-tinted print of the film was rediscovered in Germany. This print has been beautifully restored by the Deutsches Filminstitut. Nielsen’s central performance is mesmerising. Cast: Hamlet – Asta Nielsen Ophelia – Lilly Jacobson Claudius – E. von Winterstein Gertrude – Mathilde Brandt Horatio – Heinz Stieda Robin Harris’s memorable score helps bring the film to life in fresh and wonderful ways.

SHAKESPEARE IN HIS CUPS Written by Richard Hurford Companyia Pelmànec of Catalonia presents

THE DIAGNOSIS: HAMLET

YORKTHEATREROYAL.CO.UK

01904 623568

Max wants to be Hamlet. He wants Shakespeare to make decisions for him, to speak for him. He wants to be liberated from his pain and his fear through the words of one of the most complex and analysed characters in literature. And so, day after day, he reimagines his life: to be a producer, to be a puppeteer encouraging and controlling the nightmares that haunt him. But the brain is perverse, sooner or later we all must face the great truth: life is uncertainty. Presented in Spanish with English surtitles “Don't think puppetry is just for children. Miquel Gallardo's puppets are alive and autonomous... a lucid, brilliant, poetic show, which starts smiles and creates dreams.” El País Monday 11 May & Tuesday 12 May

It is a naughty end of the tour night as three actors tell tales of Shakespeare in drink. As they play out scenes of folly and malevolence, their lives slowly merge into that of the characters and Shakespeare’s exploration of the human condition through drink becomes that of their own.

Carrying all their set, props and costumes on just 4 bikes, they will be rocking up in their innovative style to perform Shakespeare's anarchic farce of mistaken identity and too many twins.

With creditors closing in, Timon prepares a final party to make his farewells. And what a farewell this will be... For their twenty-seventh production, York Shakespeare Project presents this dark tale of the dangers of greed, following

Northern Broadsides present

KING LEAR Directed by Jonathan Miller

THEATRE

King Lear is the story of a family at war with itself. Lear, an aging and deeply flawed individual, wrecks his relationship with his three daughters and in doing so, loses all he has. What is there left? This question, which is Lear’s predicament and Shakespeare’s genius, invites us all to think upon what we might gain when nothing is all we have. Miller famously described King Lear as “The most interesting play Shakespeare ever wrote”. With his keen eye for the subtleties of human behaviour and a sharp focus on the emotional power of the story, be prepared for a ‘Lear’ stripped back to its heart and soul; intimate, moving and utterly believable. This is Miller’s second collaboration with the multi award-winning Northern Broadsides; a company whose trademark vigour, simplicity and down-toearth performance style has won over a whole new generation of Shakespeare fans. Designed by Isabella Bywater Lighting by Guy Hoare “Northern Broadsides have a vigorous aesthetic, a way of doing Shakespeare that is revelatory.” The Independent on Sunday “Northern Broadsides can bring Shakespeare to life as gripping, accessible theatre for today simply by making the words sing.” The Guardian Tuesday 12 – Saturday 16 May Location 16: TFTV Mainstage, University of York Time: 7.30pm with a 2.30pm Saturday Matinee Tickets: Tues - Thurs eve £22 Full Price Concessions £2 off £15 Under 18s Fri - Sat eve £25 Full Price Concessions £2 off £18 Under 18s Sat Matinee £18 Full Price Concessions £2 off £14 Under 18s Schools £10 (£1 transaction fee per booking)

TALKS

PROFESSOR IRENA MAKARYK

SHAKESPEARE IN UKRAINE:VOICING THETIMES Banned in Ukraine by the tsars, Shakespeare made his longawaited entrance in 1919 during the tumultuous years of civil war, world war, and revolution. In this illustrated lecture, Irena Makaryk will show how Shakespeare can be invited to connect with the moment by arguing that Kurbas' Macbeth in 1924 was a reflection of the upheaval of those difficult times. Irena R. Makaryk, Professor of English at the University of Ottawa, is author of Shakespeare in the Undiscovered Bourn (2004), Shakespeare in the Worlds of Communism and Socialism (with J. G. Price, 2006), Modernism in Kyiv (with V. Tkacz, 2010), and Shakespeare and the Second World War (with M. McHugh, 2012).

SING LIKE BIRDS I’TH’CAGE: CULTIVATING SHAKESPEARE IN CAPTIVITY, 1914-2014

ENDS,EXITS AND THE‘ESCHATON’IN ‘KING LEAR’

For over a century, civilians in labour camps, prison camps, and concentration camps worldwide have read, taught, cited, and performed the works of Shakespeare. This talk investigates how ‘Shakespeare’ gave meaning to the existence of those interned, but also the ways in which present-day observers may benefit from these internment camp cultures. Ton Hoenselaars, Professor of Early Modern English History and Culture at Utrecht University, is author of, among other titles, Shakespeare's History Plays (2004), Shakespeare and the Language of Translation (2012), and Shakespeare behind Barbed Wire (forthcoming 2016).

Tuesday 12 May Location 15: Bowland Auditorium, Berrick Saul, University of York Time: 5pm Ticket: FREE to book

A half-century ago, Frank Kermode argued influentially that in King Lear the scriptural sense of endtime had given way to modern fictive notions of the end. And yet the eschaton is deeply embedded in the structure of Lear, not just in the plot’s drawn-out movement through an apocalyptic storm to a “promised end”, but in smaller scenic units that problematize the exits that bring scenes to a close. But what happens to these in-built eschatological structures in performances that are resolutely secular? Margreta de Grazia, Emerita Rosenberg Professor in the Humanities at the University of Pennsylvania, is the author of, among other titles, Shakespeare Verbatim (1991), “Hamlet” without Hamlet (2007), and Five Shakespearean Period Pieces (forthcoming).

THEVOICES OF ‘KING LEAR’ By the time he wrote King Lear Shakespeare had developed an unsurpassed mastery of the writing of stage dialogue. This talk will explore, with the help of performed excerpts from actors, the richness and variety of the performance possibilities of this extraordinary script.

The Cathedral Cities partnership between the Universities of Cologne and York presents

A PARTY FORWILL: EXHIBITION Heslington Hall is the Tudor manor house in the heart of Heslington that was partially rebuilt in the Victorian style in the nineteenth century and is now the nerve centre of the University of York. To celebrate the York International Shakespeare Festival, this impressive manor house is opening its doors to host an international Shakespeare

exhibition. The exhibition, generously on loan from the University of Cologne, features an array of interesting and varied Shakespeare-related artefacts, art works and fascinating records of production. As part of this celebration of Shakespearean performance histories, visitors will be invited to explore the range of ways in which Shakespeare has been interpreted at different moments and in different places. ’A Party for Will’ was originally curated in Germany by Petra Hesse and Peter Marx. The Cologne/York cathedral cities exhibition project is managed by Peter Marx, Judith Buchanan, Sascha Forster, Carla Suthren and Helen Jacobs, with postgraduates from both universities.

With thanks to the YuFund, the Erasmus programme and the University of Cologne for kind support for this exhibition, and to the University of York for generously relocating other core activity from Heslington Hall to make the exhibition possible.
