About the Event

Around the world, Musical Theatre is having an identity crisis. With continuing cultural developments and an increased reach of social movements, every art form is required to adapt or lose resonance. In the past few exciting years, the male lead of ‘Bobby’ in Company has been transformed into the female, ‘Bobbie’, the end of ‘My Fair Lady’ has been transformed with a nod to the #metoo movement, and ‘Oklahoma’ on Broadway has again become alarmingly daring. 

This interactive workshop is a chance for theatre practitioners to investigate and interrogate how we might reinterpret classic text’s, through performance, looking all the time for ways to maintain the writer’s intentions while ensuring the form works towards greater inclusivity.  Facilitator, Tyran Parke.
