Shakespeare Translate: Romeo & Juliet

Doghouse Ensemble Theatre
February 2017

About the Production

As created by Sophia Carlin, Sarah Hurley, and Melissa Ingle, they ask the question “What happens when you put Shakespeare’s work through Google Translate umpteen times?” By deconstructing language and music, examining how we interpret classical text in the 21st century, and by allowing Shakespearian text to let loose and be funny, we hope our audiences will discover that “where words fail, music speaks.” Regardless of what language theatre is expressed through, we all seem to stop and listen to the rhythm, tempo, cadence, and lyrical quality within the music of language that provides greater understanding of human empathy.

Shakespeare Translate: Romeo & Juliet by William Shakespeare and Google Translate was presented on February 10th, 2017 at Pace University. It was livestreamed on the Doghouse Ensemble Theatre Facebook page.
