How does Iago stack up to art’s great villains? Does the casting of Othello change how audiences experience the story? What do the relationships in the play tell us about Shakespeare’s concept of marriage? Spend your morning engaging with these questions along with scholars, experts and artists. Morning refreshments provided.
The Perfect Villain
Dissect the character Iago by exploring the history of theatrical villains and the impact of this master manipulator on art and pop culture. Panelists include Jonno Roberts (Iago), Soraya Nadia McDonald, senior culture writer at ESPN’s “The Undefeated” and Paul Cantor, professor of English at University of Virginia. Moderated by author and theatre director Isaac Butler.
The Woman’s Role
Othello presents us with three women who can be seen as trapped in a man’s world. This conversation will discuss their agency, victimhood, and how they subvert their prescribed roles. Featuring Ryman Sneed (Desdemona), Merritt Janson (Emilia) and Holly Dugan, professor of English at George Washington University. Moderated by Community Engagement Manager Laura Buda.
Playing the Moor
What does this production’s casting of a South Asian man as Othello say about the character and his perceived otherness? This panel will look at the role, its Orientalist history and the representation of Muslim identity on the stage. Featuring Faran Tahir (Othello), Amal Amireh, professor of English at George Mason University, and Imtiaz Habib, professor of English at Old Dominion University. Moderated by Audience Enrichment Manager Hannah Hessel Ratner.
