Storming Utopia

Storming Utopia

‘Storming Utopia’ in the college gardens. We will perform an outdoor version of the show in the garden by the lake, followed by a reprise of Lucy Leave’s tempestuous music. We will start at 2pm and finish by around 3pm.  Tickets for this event are free, but it would be good to have some sense of numbers, so please email wes.williams@seh.ox.ac.uk if you get the chance. If you don’t, just come anyway. Entrance is through the Porter’s Lodge. Please also bring a rug/picnic chair and if you would like to bring a picnic to enjoy whilst watching you are more than welcome.  All ages welcome, and there will be cake… 

About the Storming Utopia Project

Part of a Knowledge Exchange Programme with the Pegasus Theatre and others within Oxford, Storming Utopia has been engaging a range of people in discussions about ideal communities, and the relation between Thomas More’s Utopia, first published 500 years ago, Shakespeare’s Tempest, and Oxford, today. The central questions we have been asking are: who owns, runs, or governs the city we live in? how do you get in, and how do you leave? do the various parts of Oxford – schools, mosques, churches, rivers, playgrounds, shopping centres, colleges… and theatres – make of our city a Utopia, or just a collection of islands?  These are ancient questions, but they all still matter today. Any questions? Email: wes.williams@seh.ox.ac.uk
