DiVerseCity is an initiative by The Shakespeare Company which brought together an ensemble of actors from diverse ethnicities to perform Shakespeare in all four quadrants of Calgary. Because Shakespeare’s stories and characters are universal, his text is ideal for showcasing ethnic diversity- a quality Calgary has, but often does not highlight. Learn more about DiVerseCity here.
