Law meets theatre in Pop Up Globe collaboration

From Nine To Noon, 11:26 am on 18 March 2020

A different take on sponsoring the arts is seeing lawyers take centre stage at Pop Up Globe. Thanks to a unique sponsorship approach with law firm Anthony Harper aspiring young lawyers have been using Shakespeare plays to hone their court-room skills. The theme that was to be explored this year was intellectual property and related matters that occur in the new play Emilia, currently making its international premiere at Auckland's Pop-up Globe, directed by Miriama McDowell. Emilia plays until March 22. Kathryn Ryan is joined by Pop-up Globe's Associate Art Director and Head of Research, David Lawrence and Lythan Chapman, the Business Development and Marketing Manager at Anthony Harper.
