ABOUT THE CONTAINER GLOBE
Around 400 years ago, William Shakespeare and his partners built a theater in the round and called it The Globe. It was a place where the audience and players got very 'up close and personal', and the often drunk and rowdy crowd connected closely with the actors - and sometimes even became part of the action. It was where Shakespeare's genius plays really came alive - not just words learned by rote in dusty schoolrooms.
Our idea is simple: to build a modern Globe (or Globes!) from re-purposed shipping containers and commonly available building materials and have a venue not only for putting on big gutsy Shakespeare, but also for music, dance and live events. The Container Globe will be a place that both refers back to Shakespeare's classical Globe, but is also modern, vital and new.
The Container Globe is both modular and mobile…it can be broken down, moved and reassembled, and is a low-cost alternative to brick-and-morter theaters. We can build Globes anywhere there's containers and scaffolding - i.e. pretty much everywhere. Imagine a Detroit Globe, or an Africa Globe… a Wellington and a Mumbai Globe.

CONTAINER GLOBE EVENTS
CONTAINER GLOBE EXHIBITION
AT ORA GALLERY
New York City - February 2nd through 28th
CLOSING NIGHT PARTY!!!
Wednesday, March 1st 6PM-8PM
Come one, come all to the FINAL night of the
"Never Mind the Bullocks - Here's The Container Globe"
We'd love to see you, meet you, hug and share a beverage with you - so if you're in New York in February, come see us! Please tell your friends, fellow bardolators, frothing Shakespeare boffins, one and all...
The location of the ORA gallery is on 7th Ave between 13th & 14th streets.
The exhibition is titled "Never Mind the Bollocks - Here's The Container Globe" because we think that both Shakespeare was a bit of a punk rocker for his time (for upending and exploding the world of playwriting) and that the Container Globe is a punk reimagining of Shakespeare's original Globe.
We'll also be running an online crowdfunding campaign that will run at the same time as the exhibition...more to come on that !
Please follow, fawn over & hit us up on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter etc !
