Elkafka Espacio Teatral’s Henry IV, Part 2 is performed in Argentine Spanish as part of the Globe’s innovative programme Globe To Globe.
Ruben Szuchmacher, one of Argentina’s most influential and controversial directors, brings a new production of this elegiac and funny masterpiece. A celebrated defender of the theatre’s freedom from the state, his work combines the richness of Shakespeare’s texts with a simple theatrical aesthetic. His approach has won him great acclaim as one of the most admired Shakespearean artists in South America.
Globe To Globe sees every one of Shakespeare’s 37 plays performed in a different language by an international company. The result is a once in a life time, six week celebration of the incredible breadth of communities and languages that make up London’s vibrant cultural landscape.
