154 Actors ~ 154 Locations ~ 154 SONNETS
Welcome to the Globe Player’s offerings from The Sonnet Project, a completely crazy idea dreamed up by Ross Williams and the team at NY Shakespeare Exchange. It’s a tapestry of cinematic art that infuses the poetry of William Shakespeare into the poetry of New York City. They are in the process of filming all 154 of Shakespeare’s sonnets, each performed by a different actor in a carefully chosen New York City location.
Each film is its own expansive, narrative work of art. By finding a contemporary expression of his poems, the project attempts to reach into the heart of what Shakespeare can reveal to us, and about us.
