The University of Iowa

Book Wings: South Africa

Join us today at 12pm (CST)! Today, the University of Iowa will link up with the Artscape Theatre Centre in Cape Town, South Africa for a collaborative theatre performance. Using the latest videoconferencing technology, we'll bring together actors, playwrights, directors, dramaturges, and stages thousands of miles apart to produce one unified performance known as Book Wings South Africa.

Book Wings started in 2012 as a collaboration between the Moscow Art Theatre (Moscow, Russia) and the University of Iowa. Since then, partners have included Shanghai Dramatic Arts Centre (Shanghai, China) and University of Baghdad (Baghdad, Iraq). Collaborative digitally-connected theatre that brings specially commissioned literary works by distinguished authors to the stage and to internet viewers around the world.
