At the heart of each ten-minute film will be brand new material, shot on location in a setting with particular historical and narrative resonance. Confirmed filming locations include Hampton Court Palace for Henry VIII, The Tower of London for Richard III, Westminster Abbey for Henry IV, The Houses of Parliament for Richard II, Areopagus Hill in Athens for Timon of Athens, the Forest of Ardennes in Belgium for As You Like It, Tomba di Giulietta in Verona for Romeo and Juliet and Kronborg Castle in Denmark for Hamlet.
As well as being screened along a 2 ½ mile stretch of the Thames between Westminster and Tower Bridge, The Complete Walk will also be exported to other cities around the country and the world. Confirmed hosts for the series of films thus far include Liverpool and Santa Barbara.
Each film, one for each of Shakespeare’s plays will be shown in venues throughout Liverpool city centre. A full list of venues, opening times and the locations of each play will be released in March. If you are a venue and are interested in hosting a film please email email@example.com no later than 5pm Friday 26 February.
Small, fleet-of-foot film crews have been flying around the world to capture performances against the original settings from Shakespeare’s global imagination. More casting and filming locations will be announced in the coming weeks.
