Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan

As part of the "In Conversation" portion of the Shakespeare on the Saskatchewan Festival  I will be speaking with Artistic Director Mark von Eschen on July 18th before the beginning of Hamlet.  

I hope you can make it out to the festival, Shakespeare has a way with words that fascinates me.  The play is linked to my upcoming exhibition, Evince, that is about the changing world of books . Some of the artwork is inspired by Shakespeare and uses text and pages from his plays, others are inspired by Michel de Montaigne. Even though he wrote in the 16th century his writing still has an impact on my thoughts.
