Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article considers the Mike Pearson and Mike Brookes National Theatre Wales co-production of Shakespeare’s Coriolan/us, performed in Hangar 858 at RAF St. Athan in the Vale of Glamorgan in August 2012. It unpacks the concepts of ‘here’ and ‘there’ as they were embodied within the performance itself and the location in the broader context of the Cultural Olympiad. We reflect on the fact that the ‘here’ of this production was far from either London or Stratford, more typically places of Shakespearean performance.
