RESEARCH IN ACTION: DISABILITY IN PERFORMANCE.

Sam Wanamaker Playhouse
Book Now

What happens when we put disability at the heart of early modern performance? Dr Allison P. Hobgood joins our Research team to explore the ways in which the disabled body made meaning for Renaissance audiences. We’ll uncover how disability offers powerful theatrical possibilities and new modes of performance.

Our research workshops give you a chance to be part of the Globe’s exploration of early modern and contemporary performance culture.

Using extracts from well-known and less-familiar plays, Globe actors and leading academics uncover and question the practices of the Shakespearean stage. Expect discoveries – and expect to be asked for your feedback.
