In this collaboration with fourteen acting students at Unitec's School of Performing Arts in Auckland, New Zealand, our production pointed to the things about Othello that troubled us. Through textual repetition, looping and a chorus of women, we created a re-working of Shakespeare rooted in the contemporary realities of racism and intimate partner violence within New Zealand.

Presented 10-17 June 2017, Unitec Theatre, Auckland, New Zealand.
