Mahra Al Mualla, ‘The Tempest’

CSM MA Character Animation students have created a series of short films exploring Shakespeare through animation, for an exhibition at the Royal Shakespeare Company.

Each film finds inspiration in the Shakespeare plays Twelfth Night and The Tempest, exploring themes of identity and gender, post-colonialism, love and friendship. Devices and Disguises brings life to new imaginary, places and characters whilst reaffirming the power of storytelling and visual language.

Tom Rourke, ‘A Vanity of Mine Art’

The project is a collaboration between the Royal Shakespeare Company and Central Saint Martins. Devices and Disguises is part of the World Shakespeare Festival and will be exhibited at the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford-upon-Avon. The World Shakespeare Festival is produced by the Royal Shakespeare Company for London 2012 Festival.
