Sign language, hip-hop and Maori are just some of the diverse ways in which all of Shakespeare’s plays will be performed at London’s Globe Theatre as part of 2012’s Cultural Olympiad.
The theatre’s artistic director Dominic Dromgoole described Globe to Globe as both “bizarre and exciting”.
He said it will be the first time a full Shakespeare play is performed in British Sign Language for an audience of both deaf and hearing people.
Each play is in a different language.
Globe to Globe is part of the World Shakespeare Festival, which will include thousands of global performers in 70 shows as well as a British Museum exhibition.
