Royal Birmingham Conservatoire (2nd floor)
Shakespeare in South Asia offers a glimpse of South Asia’s fascination with Shakespeare, and his enduring influence on the cultures and lives of its people.
The exhibition takes visitors on a visual tour of each of the eight countries that make up South Asia (Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka), offering an intriguing snapshot into each country’s relationship with Shakespeare and how they have made him part of their own evolving history.
The exhibition was curated by Dr Islam Issa and six students from Birmingham City University in partnership with the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust. It is on loan from Shakespeare Birthplace Trust and will be on show at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire from 17th April until 3rd May 2018.
