2020 Rockspeare: Richard III
Lakespeare & Co, in collaboration with Event Audio Visual Services (EAVS) Pty Ltd and presented by the Where You Are Festival with the support of the ACT Government, are bringing their unique 90-minute version of William Shakespeare’s Richard III to live and streamed audiences this August.
After the 30-year-long Wars of the Roses, rival Houses York and Lancaster seem to be at peace. However factional players are never at peace and the King’s youngest brother Richard, Duke of Gloucester, covets the throne. Rockspeare brings the power hungry worlds of history, politics and fame together in a universe where factious rivalry is the currency of the day.
Rockspeare is directed by Lexi Sekuless, original compositions by Jay Cameron, costume design by Fiona Victoria Hopkins and choreography by Tim Sekuless and Annette Sharpe.
For those in constant admiration of the work of Fiona Victoria Hopkins, we thought we’d share some of the costume sketches, giving you an insight into the creative process.
