Shakespeare and the Alchemy of Gender

Visionary theatre artist Lisa Wolpe’s new solo show Shakespeare and the Alchemy of Gender offers a unique celebration of the power of the eloquence of Shakespeare to build empathy and understanding in a world where the unspeakable seems to happen again and again.

In Shakespeare and the Alchemy of Gender she performs Romeo, Hamlet, Richard III, Shylock and more, while exploring her growing awareness of her father’s life as a WWII war hero and Nazi resistance fighter. Her work speaks towards liberation from the "gender box" of expectations, and offers a unique and powerful perspective of courage, resilience and hope against her family's troubled background of war, sickness, suicide and despair.
