Asian performances of Shakespeare in Asia, Europe, and beyond have transformed both Shakespeare and Asian cultures.

This review discusses the philosophy behind Global Shakespeares and SPIA, a collaborative archival and research project, and the unique resources it provides, including video highlights with English subtitles, photos, and texts from Asia, the United States, and Europe.
