PD WORKSHOP: TEACHING CONTEMPORARY ADAPTATION

Othello, William Shakespeare’s classic tale of jealousy, betrayal and revenge is thrillingly re-imagined by Jimi Bani and Jason Klarwein.

DATE & TIME: Tue 19 July, 6pm – 8pm
FACILITATOR: Jason Klarwein

The Contemporary Adaptations workshop focuses on Shakespeare’s Othello adapted by Jimi Bani and Jason Klarwein and its connection to Unit 4: Contemporary Adaptation (Transform). Jason Klarwein, playwright, actor and Artistic Director of Grin & Tonic Theatre Troupe, will present the workshop and explore the inherited theatrical traditions of Shakespeare and the current dramatic practices used to transformed Othello.

Set between Cairns and the Torres Strait, this tri-lingual (Kala Lagaw Ya, Yumpla Tok and English) adaptation of Shakespeare’s Othello, illuminates the vital role of the Torres Strait Light Infantry Battalion during World War II. More than 800 Torres Strait Islanders signed up to protect the northern tip of Australia, including Jimi Bani’s grandfather and great grandfather.

Infusing the narrative of Othello with the historical setting of the battalion brings together two powerful artistic cultures — Shakespeare and Wagadagam — creating an utterly distinctive and electrifying theatre experience.

Participants will get a copy of the text once its published in September, alongside the production by Queensland Theatre.
