FRACTURED SHAKESPEARE re-contextualizes the words of the bard to find new meaning by producing new works from the age-old text.
Introducing: “Was it Rape, Then?”
A narrative video short following four women in their fight against sexual assault. When they speak, they use Shakespeare’s words; recontextualized excerpts from Shakespeare’s plays woven together to form a new story – a Fractured Shakespeare. Originally conceived by Charissa J. Adams as a monologue for the consent-culture burlesque Cabaret Consensual, it was adapted by partners Kari Lee Cartwright and Thaddeus Shafer and is presented in association with Lady Brain Films, More Than “No“, and Los Angeles Theatre Makers United for Progress.
