UPDATE: If you missed the show, you can now stream it from the Report from Santa Fe site. A BIG Thank you to Lorene who brings out the best in everyone.
Robin Williams and Kristin Bundesen had the privilege of being interviewed by veteran journalist Lorene Mills for her show Report From Santa Fe in her studio in the New Mexico State Capitol building last week. We talked about the extensive activities happening around the First Folio February celebrations and the New Mexico Museum of Art exhibit The First Folio! The Book That Gave Us Shakespeare opening on February 5, 2016 as well as the history of reading Shakespeare.
Lorene has been an enthusiastic supporter of the International Shakespeare Center Santa Fe vision since the early days of 2014. Her continued support of our development has cheered us on since then.
Here is a brief excerpt from New Mexico PBS on the interview:
Drs. Williams and Bundesen detail the many events surrounding the exhibit by more than 15 partnering organizations--events which include classical theater performances of Shakespeare's “Hamlet” and “The Winter's Tale,” public lectures with international Shakespeare scholars, concerts, films, world class theater training, and readings. There will also be fun events including a Comic Book Shakespeare workshop, a Treasure Hunt in downtown Santa Fe, a Shakespeare-inspired Valentine's Day extravaganza and more.
Participating 15 New Mexico organizations include the NM History Museum, the Lensic Performing Arts Center, St. John's College, Santa Fe Community Orchestra, and the International Shakespeare Center. Other collaborators include the London Academy of Music and the Dramatic Arts, which will present world-class acting workshops and a masterclass on the First Folio, and the New York theater ensemble group Ducdame. The artists in the Book Arts Group have created books relating to the texts of Shakespeare which will be on display at the NM History Museum, “The Book's the Thing: Shakespeare from Page to Stage.”
