• Shakespearean process guided by feminist ideals: the drive of presence with an engine of collaboration

      Amiran, Maayan (2018-12)
      This thesis seeks to explore how Feminist ideals simultaneously guide and emerge from Shakespearean theatrical process through my observations of the actors’ experiences in our production of William Shakespeare’s, The Tempest . I produced this play adhering to traditions of 17th century English theatre. Within those constraints and that of the text, I found that the presence and collaboration necessary to produce Shakespeare was strengthened and sustained through the Feminist ideals of listening, vulnerability, love, play, pleasure, and curiosity.
