Shakespeare’s work was the focus of our February tour to New York and New Jersey. Through performances, workshops and a panel discussion focusing on the transformative power of Shakespeare’s language, we were in conversation and exploration with high schools, churches, colleges and anyone interested in being involved in recognizing Shakespeare in this context.
Elements presented the premiere of Labyrinth: The Legacy of Language (an original work exploring the Bard’s influence on playwrights through the centuries, from Goldsmith to Ibsen to Stoppard) in NYC. Besides performances and a panel discussion, the tour also included workshops at NYACK Manhattan, the Notre Dame Girls School, Blessed Sacrament School, and Danville Highschool.
