(From the Hindustan Times, 11/6.)
William Shakespeare will soon travel to the villages of India when a leading French repertory company in collaboration with the Mumbai-based Prithvi Theatre stages his masterpiece The Tempest in a mobile tend. The 35-year-old Paris-based Footsbarn Company is a travelling tent theatre troupe. It has announced a two-year theatre exchange project between India and France, "Dream Project", which will see the troupe tour India with Shakespeare's The Tempest in a customised tent in 2012.
