Kingston Shakespeare seminar: Shakespeare and Nietzsche symposium

David Garrick built his Shakespeare Temple beside the Thames at Hampton in 1755 as a shrine, where 'the leading thinkers of the world' would meet to reflect on the plays. Now the Kingston Shakespeare Seminar is realizing the great actor's vision, with a series of symposia on Shakespeare in Philosophy.

Each of these Saturday events will feature talks by leading philosophers and Shakespeare scholars, coffee and tea in the riverside garden designed by Capability Brown, and lunch at the historic Bell Inn. An optional extra will be a professional concert of period music.

On Saturday 2 September the symposium will be on Shakespeare and Nietzsche with talks by Katie Brennan, Paul Kottman, Bjorn Quiring, Tracy Strong and Scott Wilson.

There will be a concert following the event (optional) which will be a rare opportunity to hear compositions by Nietzsche himself, together with the music by Wagner and others that inspired him, performed under the direction of Chantal Schutz.
