We are Julia Siedlanowska and Kara Nolte: the directors of Shakespeare: Unchained. We have a mutual love for the ridiculously serious and theatrically rhythmic. Our paths first crossed while studying theatre at Douglas College and came together again in Skytrain tunnels and coffee shops in East Vancouver in early 2014 to form Shakespeare: Unchained.
Last year we created our second show together, “Chivalry is Dead” which premièred July 24th 2015. The show is based on Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra’s “Don Quixote” or “The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha.”
Currently we supporting the development of a new work by Kara “Women in White” which will be in residency at Theatre Junction in Calgary Alberta January 9th-January 14th
The work is an exploration of sisterhood, compliance and rebellion in relationships and stories of female friendship through text, movement and song.
