The Alabama Shakespeare Project (ASP) is a performance-based research collective exploring early modern entertainments. To sponsor this trans-disciplinary and collaborative work, we
- stage free readings of the plays by William Shakespeare and his contemporaries, performed by University of Alabama undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, and community members.
- facilitate performance-based research projects and experiments led by graduate students and faculty in the Hudson Strode Program in Renaissance Studies.
- collaborate with art-makers and scholars in the American southeast in conditions digital and live.
We welcome performers from all backgrounds, identities, and communities, including undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, and community members. No previous experience is required.
