Why Shakespeare is Brazilian


'How did Shakespeare – looking at the world around him, his society, and without judgment or preconception – manage to connect with it, seemingly so effortlessly?'

Renato Rocha, a member of Companhia Bufomecânica which is staging Two Roses for Richard III, explains how Shakespeare speaks to and from Brazil.

He talks about contemporary Brazilian politics, including parallels with Richard III.

Read Renato's article on the Guardian website.
