Canadian Adaptations

The Canadian Adaptations of Shakespeare Project gallery explores the myriad of Shakespearean adaptations and interpretations within the context of Canadian theatrical culture. Shakespearean adaptation in Canada dates back to pre-Confederation and has continued to exert cultural force through to the present day. The multitude of productions and adaptive inventiveness present in this gallery demonstrates an astonishingly wide spectrum of artistic creation that reveals the complex relationship Canadians have with one of the most globalized iconic cultural figures to emerge in the last several hundred years. This relationship places Shakespeare in distinctly Canadian contexts, while affirming the evolution of Canada’s cultural heritage and situating it in multiple adaptive contexts that explore what it means to be “Canadian.”
