It may happen that you feel the mind squashing boredom of reading or listening to Shakespeare. Well, he can be dull and boring to those who have read him in a very tedious way.
On the contrary, if the English learners experience a lively, challenging and edifying introduction to Shakespeare, the chances are that they will fall in love with it.
That is what these women tried to do. They performed the works of Shakespeare in public in a manner that you would never expect.
They were making preparations to perform the nude version of the play.
In fact, director Pitr Strait supported their statement and added that people will definitely come up with strong reactions.
The play was set on a magical isle and the local occupants of the island began the play wearing pencil skirts, high heels and corsets. And slowly they lost their clothing outfits for the performance.
"We got the permissions for the shows and we were really interested in getting an audience to be able to see nudity as non-sexual, non-threatening, and eventually not even strange," said Strait. "By the end the play, it's normal."
"We focused deeply on the language, so this play isn't just about a bunch of naked women. We're all trained, Shakespearean actors. As an actor, doing Shakespeare is already difficult, but now doing it nude was another layer of 'Oh my God."
The play was part of the promotion and the group wanted to promote positive body images. They wanted to show that just like men, women shouldn't be ashamed of their bodies.
The performances ran on September 10 at Prospect Park's Music Pagoda.
To celebrate body freedom and normalise the nude female form.
