Guest Lecture Dr. Kristine Johanson: ‘Juliet’s Desire, Danced’

April 23 @ 15:00 - 16:00

Join us at a Guest Lecture given by Dr. Johanson on Romeo and Juliet by Shakespeare. It will take place on the 23rd of April at 15.00 in PCH 1.14. Read the abstract below!

“In this lecture I reflect on the adaptation history of Juliet’s “Gallop Apace” soliloquy from Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. I will discuss how remarkable both the speech is in articulating early modern female sexual desire and the play’s adaptation history that has often ignored it – until recently with the Seattle Dance Collective’s short ballet film ‘Gallop Apace’. I will screen the SDC’s ten-minute film as part of my lecture and will follow it with an analysis of the piece and its importance in the adaptation history of R&J.”
