Latin American Shakespeare: Time-Lapse Heat Map

By Latin America / Caribbean Map Group

This heat map reflects Latin American Shakespeare adaptations and performances as they increased in frequency over time and space. It is interesting to note the very gradual increase of the productions over the years, with a boom in the past decade. Productions of the play seem to come in waves, with periods of stagnancy and periods of tremendous popularity. Whether or not these waves are reflective of how the amount of productions produced or due to differences in the amount of accessible coverage on these productions is unclear. Unsurprisingly, the bulk of productions are centered in metropolitan cities, such as Buenos Aires and Mexico City.
