Jessica Bauman Visit

UCLA is delighted to bring director Jessica Bauman to campus October 23 and 24. Bauman’s most recent project, Arden/Everywhere, retells As You Like It as a story of forced migration, in which the words of contemporary refugees find space within Shakespeare’s drama of loss and reconciliation. 

As the world faces the largest refugee crisis since World War II, Arden/Everywhere reminds us of the capacity of theater to generate empathy and demand change.

Bauman will be visiting our working group on The Comedia in Translation and Performance and taking part in the following events. If you would like to join us for any of these productive discussions of Shakespearean drama, theatrical practice, and urgent social concerns, please RSVP to Professor Kim Hedlin at
