Pourquoi/Why Shakespeare in French Canada?

This gallery evaluates the importance of Shakespearean adaptations in French Canada. Examining productions from the 1960s onwards, an extraordinary range of original and modernist motifs becomes apparent. Shakespearean adaptation has been used in French Canada as a means of declaring cultural independence, which both rejects French colonial ideals, and asserts freedom from anglicized Canada and its traditionalist approaches to Shakespearean production and interpretation.
