INTERVIEW: TONY HOWARD
The University of Warwick professor talks to Suman Bhuchar about Multicultural Shakespeare, a major AHRC-funded project to record the contribution of Black and Asian artists to the development of Shakespearean performance in the UK. Recorded at the National Theatre, 10 January 2013.
It’s an attempt to write a history that hasn’t really been recorded, which is the history of Black British and Asian performers working on Shakespeare in the UK, including actors from abroad making their mark here.
