Road to The Globe
In 2010, the home of Shakespeare – The Globe Theatre in London, England – issued a proclamation outlining the world’s biggest Shakespearean festival: 36 countries, 36 Shakespearean plays, 36 languages. New Zealand actor Rawiri Paratene answered the call and was given the honor of opening the festival. Spanning the twelve-week period before opening night, the film follows Rawiri as he forms his own company, Ngakau Toa, consisting of New Zealand’s best Maori actors, and their journey as they prepare to take their Maori adaption of William Shakespeare’s Troilus and Cressida to The Globe.
