The new season of the Stuff of Dreams will be announced in due course. Read on to learn more about the Stuff of Dreams 2015 Programme, chaired by Andrea Sabbadini:
Freud remarked more than once that in understanding of the depths of human experience and the existence of the unconscious mind, he was preceded by the “poets and philosophers”. And for him, one of the greatest of the poets and philosophers was Shakespeare.
To mark the year of the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare’s birth, over the course of the year we presented twelve remarkable films of (or based on) as many Shakespeare works – covering the tragedies, comedies and histories.
After each film, the works and their transposition to the screen were explored by psychoanalysts familiar with Shakespeare’s work, together with prominent actors, directors, and critics. As always, the audience was invited to take part in discussions – which you'll be able to listen to as we post our audio recordings from the events.
