With the support of Lotterywest and under the guidance of Suzanne Ingelbrecht, Spectrum Space formed a company to explore whether Shakespeare can be made relevant to the neurodivergent community. Suzanne, an award-winning Australian playwright, director of the professional theatre ensemble Fragmented Artists, and Research Associate at Curtin University, has worked with Company members Jess Dening, Jen Harland, Isabel Grace, Henry Wilson, AJ Sheehy, Honor Boekeman, Trudi-Ann Gribble and Charlotte Paterson over a number of months on both a script and a film showcase of the re-imagined play. The project enables individuals to explore their creativity through writing, acting, costume making, make-up and filming, and showcases their talents in these disciplines. All the Company members have invested their free time and lived experience expertise to the production.
Premiering on 5 November 2022 at the Fremantle Arts Centre.
