Chatting With Sherri welcomes Streamed Shakespeare's Emily McKnight!
Shakespeare told us, ‘All the world’s a stage’ but the COVID-19 pandemic is currently dominating the scene, so why not draw the curtain and binge on The Bard instead?
With the Australian theatre industry crippled, many performers, actors, directors, and creatives are turning to digital channels to continue to practice their craft. From those efforts, Streamed Shakespeare is emerging as a breakthrough international online hit.
Every Sunday, the Sydney-based group will live-stream a staged reading of one of Shakespeare's plays to the world. Tune in via Facebook at 2 pm Sydney time to change the scene and embrace some beauty.
EMILY WHO Emily Who is a new creation from Sydney-based actor and musician Emily McKnight, who can be seen on the 7 Network’s Jay’s Jungle. Emily writes and presents the Ku-Ring-Gai Philharmonic Orchestra’s Kids’ Proms, children’s shows for the Acacia Quartet, and children’s activities at Sydney Symphony Orchestra’s family concerts. Emily released her first album of songs for kids in early 2020, produced by Robin Gist (The Wiggles) and Peter Bailey (C’Mon Kids, Hop-a-long’s School House). In 2019 Emily received the NIDA Most Outstanding Emerging Artist Award at the Sydney Fringe Festival for her performance in Gravity Guts.
