Celebrating Shakespeare, 2021
Connecting globally through celebrating Shakespeare

Share your monologues, scenes, and thoughts on Shakespeare!
We will post your pieces below.
We are accepting pieces until the end of 2021!

We Invite You to Participate in our

"Celebrating Shakespeare, 2021" Project

 

To provide a creative outlet during the pandemic and celebrate Shakespeare's birthday, we invite you to share monologues, scenes, and thoughts to celebrate Shakespeare and connect with others online, from now to the end of 2021. All are welcome to participate, from any geographical location, any level of experience, any perspective (actor, audience member, director, designer, academic, student, etc.). We hope you'll explore others’ pieces on this page, and like and support them on their platforms. 

We also have a Facebook event page, to make it easy to invite friends (https://fb.me/e/25bsbLux4), as well as the hashtag #SpeechofFireCelebratingShakespeare2021 to make it easy to find posts about the project on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

How to send your piece:

1) First, post your piece on your own preferred platform(s) (Youtube, Vimeo, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, TikTok, your website, or any other place). You can include the hashtag #SpeechofFireCelebratingShakespeare2021, but it's not required.

 

2) Then email us at speechoffire@gmail.com (or send us a message through Facebook or Instagram) with the link to your piece, plus any info you’d like us to include (see the pieces posted below for examples). We’ll add your piece to this page and share it on our social media.

Option 1: Performance--Share video or audio of yourself performing a monologue or scene. It can be as rough and off-the-cuff or as polished and rehearsed as you like!

Option 2: Sharing Thoughts on Shakespeare (video, audio, writing, etc.) reflecting on what Shakespeare means to you, a production of Shakespeare you've seen, a role of Shakespeare you've played, a play you've directed or designed, etc.

Ideas for what to create:

 

 

 

 

 

Your piece needn’t be brand new. If you’ve used it before for another purpose, that’s fine. 

Create as many pieces as you like throughout 2021!
