Shakespeare's Tribes

Twelve first-year students from BA Performance Design and Practice will be at the V&A Museum next Friday, performing as part of the Shakespeare’s Tribes event.

The Central Saint Martins students, along with those from London College of Fashion, Edinburgh College of Art and Bristol Old Vic Theatre School, have created tribes defined by specific dress, behaviour and performance codes.

Different groups will claim ‘territories’ within the museum. The public will then be able to follow this living exhibition from space to space, seeing how the tribes interact with each other and their environment.

The event takes place on Friday 2 May, from 12-9pm. Our Central Saint Martins ‘tribe’ will be performing for five hours in the space adjacent to the new Shakespeare exhibition, which the V&A is holding to celebrate the 450th anniversary of the Bard’s birth.
