  • Reclaim Shakespeare Company www.bp-or-not-bp.org
    At a time when the world should fear much more the heat of the sun and the furious winter’s rages, BP is conspiring to distract us from the naked truth of climate change and with its daring folly burn the world.

    Companies like BP are using their enormous wealth to purchase a veneer of social responsibility and respect. By sponsoring the arts they hope to present themselves as caring and necessary players in society, and thus dampen down public criticism.

    The Reclaim Shakespeare Company aims to challenge this head-on, by taking back the cultural spaces that BP has appropriated, and using them to expose the hypocrisy and unacceptable nature of oil sponsorship. We were formed in response to BP’s sponsorship of the World Shakespeare Festival and the Royal Shakespeare Company as part of the 2012 Cultural Olympiad.
