In collaboration with Gary Watt
The lifetime of an individual, as outlined by William Shakespeare in As You Like It is the unfolding framework for both the familiar and the unexpected – in Nassim Nicholas Taleb’s words, “the inability to predict outliers implies the inability to predict the course of history”.
Part-theatre, part-concert programme celebrating the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, A Strange Eventful History draws on the work of scholar Gary Watt on performance rhetoric for the Royal Shakespeare Company and his forthcoming Shakespeare’s Acts of Will, and on contemporary settings from The Song Company’s Call for Scores.
