ESRA CONGRESS 2017

The Gdansk Shakespeare Festival

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe Gdansk Shakespeare Festival is one of the biggest international events which, thanks to the Gdansk Shakespeare Theatre and Theatrum Gedanense Foundation, every year hosts the best Shakespeare productions and the most eminent theatre artists from all over the world.

In previous years we had the great pleasure of hosting such stars as Luk Perceval, László Bocsárdi, Elizabeth LeCompte, Robert Sturua, Silviu Purcarete, Edward Hall, Giuseppe Dipasquale and many others.

We also had a unique opportunity to see various interpretations of Shakespeare’s plays created by theatres from a great number of countries, such as: the United Kingdom, Russia, Ukraine, Germany, Latvia, Cuba, Denmark, Italy, Belarus, Hungary, Armenia, Iceland, Israel, Iran, South Korea, the United States of America, Japan, Spain, Georgia, Finland, Sweden, Macedonia, Czech Republic or Zimbabwe.

As every year performances will be accompanied by workshops, meetings with artists, open rehearsals, seminars and The Summer Shakespeare Academy. It is worth mentioning that our alternative ShakespeareOFF programme is especially rich.
