CONTAINER GLOBE EXHIBITION
CONTAINER GLOBE EXHIBITION AT ORA GALLERY
New York City - February 2nd through 28th
We'll be presenting an exhibition on the Container Globe at the lovely ORA gallery in New York City, that will start at the beginning of February, and run the entire month!
The Opening Night Reception will be Thursday 2nd February, 6pm - 8pm. SAVE THE DATE !
The exhibition is titled "Never Mind the Bollocks - Here's The Container Globe" because we think that both Shakespeare was a bit of a punk rocker for his time (for upending and exploding the world of playwriting) and that the Container Globe is a punk reimagining of Shakespeare's original Globe.
We'd love to see you, meet you, hug and share a beverage with you - so if you're in New York in February, come see us! Please tell your friends, fellow bardolators, frothing Shakespeare boffins, one and all...
We'll also be running an online crowdfunding campaign that will run at the same time as the exhibition...more to come on that !
There'll be a ton of activities planned throughout February (kids' days, a performance of Tom Stoppard's 15-minute Hamlet and just a lot fun things) so stay tuned for more info - and/or please follow, fawn over & hit us up on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter etc !
