Shakespeare tomará el British Museum al asalto en 2012


Ayer recibí un mail del British Musuem informándome de su nueva (macro) exposición: Shakespeare staging the world... una iniciativa monográfica que pretende recorrer la vida, obra y el período histórico del bardo inglés. Os adjunto el texto de la nota de prensa, para que vayais haciendoos a la idea y empeceis a presupuestar una escapada a Londres el año que viene...


Shakespeare
staging the world
 The BP exhibition
19 July – 25 November 2012

This major exhibition is presented in collaboration with the Royal Shakespeare Company. It will revisit William Shakespeare’s stories and tell them anew to London in 2012.
400 years ago, the playhouse dominated society, from the lowliest groundlings to kings and queens. Spanning the Elizabethan and Jacobean eras, Shakespeare used the playhouse – an exciting new way to present drama – to showcase his own particular take on history and contemporary cultures from across the world. His influence was huge in his own time and his tales echo down through the ages. The exhibition will provide a unique insight into the emerging role of London as a world city, seen through the lens of Shakespeare’s plays.
Maps, prints, drawings, paintings and tapestries will sit alongside arms and armour, books, coins, medals and much more. These objects will show the world that Shakespeare knew, highlight his importance at the time, and reveal how one man’s work has such a universal appeal. As well as the fantastic range of objects drawn from the British Museum’s collection and across Europe, contemporary performance will also bring Shakespeare’s world to life. 

Part of the World Shakespeare Festival which is part of London 2012 Festival
