Event Description : 
THEATRE : NSD Second year students present William Shakespeare's 'The Taming of the Shrew' English Play.

Concept note about the production: The Taming of the Shrew is a very early comedy by Shakespeare. The device of theater within the theater is a mechanism of mirrors that in later works Shakespeare will use with incredible mastery. From this point the main plot of the work disappears completely and it is comedy, properly speaking, that occupies the entire center of attention. It is a comedy in the nature of farce and perhaps that is why it is located in Italy, since these types of comedies were of Italian origin. However, all socio-cultural references and customs are based on the English and Elizabethan context and, were it not for the names and dimensions, we would think we continue on the Warwick stage where the prologue is located. The theme of marriage and the struggle between the sexes is a recurrent motif in both Latin comedy and medieval literature. In The Taming of the 

Shrew, it is interesting to observe the ingenious use of duplicates. The contrast between the two sisters, the two love stories, the two professors, and two scenarios, among others, gives rise to an agile and continuous dramatic counterpoint that helps very effectively that the two arguments be intertwined in an effective way. In addition to a battle of the sexes, the Taming of the Shrew is a battle between ingenuities, all subjects: domestication, education, marriage, relations between servant and servant give rise to a display of deceit and trickery where the winner is always who displays greater practical intelligence in all the cases. The choice of these text is motivated due to its

exotic, colorful and ingenious comedy that, in my opinion, are exceptionally rendered as ideal piece to investigate the ingenuity of word play; the study of the construction of typical characters, so characteristic of the Baroque theater; the rhythms of comedy; and that will serve as a laboratory vehicle to enter the search for ways of interpretation very close to the commedia della’arte in the case of The Taming of the Shrew. For the adaptation of The Taming of the Shrew, the idea is to suppress the main plot of the tavern and recount only the performance of the comedians, in order to adapt it to the number of students present. Additionally, we will investigate the insertion of popular music and choreography that we will design based on the characteristics and peculiarities that the group

offers us. For the scenery, costumes, props and lighting we will create a team with the group of students who do not participate as actors. (Pilar Valenciano)
