Black Theatre Live


'British Black & Asian Shakespeare Performance Database'

3 December 2015

This unique new research from The University Of Warwick documents nearly 1200 productions of Shakespeare since 1930. 

Dr Jami Rogers, Research Assistant and Honorary Fellow, says,

"The British Black and Asian Shakespeare Performance Database is a fantastic resource for a wide audience, celebrating inclusive classical productions. Students, teachers and academics will find it a rich resource for this little understood facet of theatre history. The database also tracks casting patterns and will provide a basis for understanding how cultural stereotypes have sometimes inhibited parity in classical theatre for the same performers the Multicultural Shakespeare project celebrates."
