The Merchant in Venice Summer School
Would you like to experience the show as part of a full-immersion experience in the world of Shakespeare’s Venice, under the guidance of the leading scholars in the field?
The Merchant in Venice was elaborated during the Shylock Project, an intensive summer school held in at Fondazione Giorgio Cini in Venice in June-July 2015. There the leading world Shakespeare scholars interacted with the Colombari Company to offer a shining program of seminars, lectures and a first performance of selected scenes from the play. The participating students were a key component of this experience.
A new edition of the the Summer School, 18-29 July 2016, will be another unique opportunity to study Shakespeare in Venice and to attend and discuss the performance of the play with its protagonists. We will explore the Ghetto and study The Merchant of Venice in a trans-national, cross-cultural and cross-disciplinary perspective. The rich program will offer lectures and seminars (with strong emphasis on students’ interactive participation), excursions, attendance of rehearsal, and discussions with the actors. The Summer School is open to up to 25 participants, graduate students, faculty members and independent scholars.
