Switching Shakespeare

A video performance work made with students of Ashington college that toured a number of University venues. The work looked at Shakespeare and how it inhabits many of our modern texts. The work looked at a student who had been set the text of Romeo and Juliet but instead of studying ends up watching Tv only to find the shows taken over by the characters from the text. The various shows they remade and recontextualised with the characters  ranged from South Park and Countdown to Star Trek and ending with The Springer Show. The set was a giant book, with the recreated TV shows projected onto the open book front.
