Project Info

Measure (Still) for Measure uses physical theatre, feminist performance theory, and Shakespeare to help young adults have conversations about rape culture, consent, and authority.

More detail about how the process works can be found on the Project Outputs page, as well as the individual project phase pages: The Bike Shed R&D, Nichols Pilot, Dalhousie workshops, Trinity University workshops, and PVCR Strategic Fund Workshops.

This website is a repository for the research and rehearsal process. It is licensed under Creative Commons and is open access. That means you can make use of and adapt anything that you find on this site for your own purposes, as long as you give us credit when you do so.

As the project grows, we hope that this website will become both an archive of our process and a resource for groups looking to adapt Shakespeare themselves.
