26 July, 2016
For fans of William Shakespeare, celebrations for his 400th birth anniversary continue. The Junction Dubai theatre is hosting a screening of 37 short films of 10 minutes each, with each film covering one of the Bard’s plays, spread across nine months. Called Shakespeare in the Sands, the first event, which will see 10 films being screened, will be held from 20-22 October. The session will be followed by a panel discussion that includes local and international actors, organisers say. Names will be revealed at a later date. Plays to be screened during Volume 1 include A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Macbeth, Othello, Romeo and Juliet and The Taming of the Shrew.
