Abstract:
One of the most remarkable facts, and challenging mysteries, in the ever-surprising world of literature is the astonishing durability of the works of William Shakespeare. Why is it that his plays, written four hundred years ago, are more frequently performed in theaters all around the world than those of any other dramatist? What distinctive qualities in his plays transcend verbal language to speak so powerfully to diverse times and cultures?

Some critics argue that Shakespeare’s greatness lies in the extraordinary richness of his language, while others find the source of his universality in the profound humanity and complexity of his characters. This session will bring together directors, actors, translators, critics, and other professionals to discuss not only the challenges of presenting Shakespeare in different languages, and to audiences in diverse cultures and social contexts, but also ways in which his works can be performed and taught more effectively.
