Shakespeare Beyond

About Shakespeare Beyond

The Queensland Shakespeare Ensemble uses Shakespeare as a platform for positive change.

Our Shakespeare Beyond programs engage with and give a voice to marginalised communities through engagement with Shakespeare's text. Through this work communities marginalised from society and from traditional theatrical engagement share in Shakespeare's words as performers, workshop participants, and audience.

Studies across the world have shown that engagement with cultural icons and with creative expression can assist communities to develop unique public voices, confidence in communication, and cohesion both within and across communities.
