TIME OUT DUBAI
Dubai and the UAE are set to pay tribute to William Shakespeare, with 2016 marking the 400th anniversary of his death. Shakespeare in the Sands, a nine-month-long commemoration including film screenings, workshops and monologues by guest artists, will be all about honouring the work of Britain’s greatest literary writer. A total of 37 short 10-minute films have been put together, focusing on each of his plays, all shot in the exact locations where Shakespeare set his masterpieces. Highly-acclaimed actors of the likes of Dominic West, James Norton, Kenneth Cranham and Gemma Arterton star in the films.
