The Belfast Tempest
Northern Ireland's largest ever Shakespeare production, the Belfast Tempest engaged 750 people across 18 months, from which a community cast and volunteer team of over 180 Northern Irish residents, originally from 52 different cities across the globe, joined 40 professional artists to create a giant temporary theatre in T13 warehouse in Belfast's Titanic Quarter. The Belfast Tempest was performed six times across four days, for 1800 people, April 20-23, 2016, as part of the global celebrations for Shakespeare400.
The Belfast Tempest was created by five partners: Terra Nova productions, the African and Caribbean Support Organisation NI, Crescent Arts Centre, LibrariesNI, and T13.
