Teaching Throne of Blood, Kurosawa’s adaptation of Macbeth

Join us for this two-evening workshop on the intersection of literature, film and theatre where we will explore Shakespeare’s Macbeth, Kurosawa’s Throne of Blood and the creativity and power of adapting literature to film. Presentations by faculty experts and master NCTA teachers will include background on the warrior culture of Japan and the ways in which literature is adapted to film as well as interactive curriculum sessions. Learn more about Shakespeare’s tale of ambition and duplicity set in the ghostly world of feudal Japan. 30 participants will receive a complimentary DVD of the film starring emblematic actor Toshiro Mifune.
