TOPIC: Othello: The Ballet

PRESENTER: Julia Lupton, PhD

Julia Reinhard Lupton will share scenes from a full-length story ballet based on Shakespeare’s Othello, choreographed by Lar Lubovitch. Can Shakespeare survive without language? How do you tell a story in movement alone? Come find out at this interactive Zoom event.

Dr Lupton is a professor of English and Comparative Literature, with a joint appointment in Education, and associate dean for research at University of California – Irvine’s School of Humanities. She is also the Co-Director of UCI’s New Swan Shakespeare Center.  In addition, she serves as the faculty director of Illuminations, the Chancellor’s arts and culture initiative.

Dr. Lupton knows how to make Shakespeare and the arts come to life! So, join us on Zoom for this entertaining and enlightening presentation.
