Wonder Noir - 2016 Winter Season:




Tuesday 28 February & Tuesday 14 March
Speaker: Tony Howard, with extracts by Bailey Patrick

Tony Howard publishes on performance in its social and political contexts, primarily Shakespeare in performance on stage and in the mass media; contemporary British drama; and East European poetry and theatre. His research currently focuses on the relationship between race and Shakespeare in modern Britain; the AHRC-funded Multicultural Shakespeare Project is gathering information on the achievements of black and Asian artists working on the plays in Britain since Paul Robeson played Othello in London in 1930. With Barbara Bogoczek he works on Polish poetry and drama, for example translating lyrics for the composer Zbigniew Preisner.
