A TRANSNATIONAL COLLABORATION BETWEEN ARTISTS FROM GREECE, LEBANON, LIBYA, SYRIA, TURKEY AND THE UK CREATING A BRAND NEW MULTILINGUAL PRODUCTION OF PERICLES BY WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE AND GEORGE WILKINS IN A NEW MULTILINGUAL TRANSLATION BY THE COMPANY
Having rehearsed the Lebanese unit in Beirut, spring 2020 was due to see the Libyan unit realised at The Lowry and work in progress sharing with Syrian, Libyan, Lebanese and UK artists at The Barbican. Inevitably, this activity was cancelled.
Whilst the impact of the global pandemic and the individual challenges faced by artists in their respective home countries has meant that progress has altered the momentum the artists attached to the Pericles international project remain passionately committed to its production.
We have connected digitally during this extraordinary 18 months and the architecture of the project remains unchanged although we are working on new ways we might to develop the process to regain momentum.
The above slides are available in a pdf deck here with original timelines which will be updated once we can confirm activity. In the meantime a documentary introducing the artists will be available soon.
We are very keen to talk to interested artists and production partners in the development of this incredible project so please do reach out if this is a matter of interest.
