Welcome to the blog for the Performance Across Language and Culture 360! In the Spring of 2013, 10 curious students and 2 brave professors ventured into the world of Shakespeare, but in a way we have never explored before: globally. Why is Shakespeare performed worldwide? What does Shakespeare mean to different cultures? What does it mean to all of us? What would happen if we performed Shakespeare in 7 different languages in a foreign country for a multilingual audience? These questions became the foundation of our adventure and we had one hell of an artistic and intellectual ride. Check out our findings before, during, and after our trip to Abu Dhabi under Global Student Shakespeare Festival 2013: NYU Abu Dhabi!
