Description

Still Shakespeare – animated shorts screening

Still Shakespeare is a slate of five artists’ short animated films including new works by Shaun Clark, Sharon Liu, Kim Noce and Farouq Suleiman and Jonathan Bairstow. The film aredeveloped in partnership with the London Shakespeare Centre at King’s College London, animation company Film Club at Th1ng and animation company Sherbet.

The aim of the project was to create contemporary artworks that take iconic Shakespearean imagery as their starting point and respond in a variety of irreverent and original ways, making Shakespeare current and engaging to wide audiences and adding a contemporary element to the Shakespeare400 worldwide celebrations in 2016. The artist filmmakers were given access to the research and expertise of the London Shakespeare Centre.

The key research feeding into the project was the PhD by Sally Barnden, in the Department of English Language & Literature. Sally’s research on the intersection of Shakespeare’s plays, performance and photography is concerned with the way that certain well-known iconic images have been absorbed into a shared cultural memory.

The films will be screened, followed by a discussion of the work with some of the artists and members of the London Shakespeare Centre.
