For its 2011 visit, the British International Theatre (BRIT) program focuses two very different lenses on Shakespeare's tragedy. Combining radically different approaches to Othello in a week of shared, key scene, workshop presentations, Frantic Assembly, one of England's premier physical theatre companies, will work with USF actors and dancers to create a multi-media piece based on Shakespeare's tragedy, while integrating an American sensibility into the work. Veteran London director Paul Miller will provide a counterpoint to this approach, working from a traditional, text-based aesthetic, to create a dynamic stylistic blend. The result: an Othello as you've never seen it.
