Description

An experimental reimagining of Shakespeare’s great play. Blinded by mad lust for power and a belief that he can possess the earth and its inhabitants, King Lear divides his kingdom and pits his children against each other, putting the existence of the world at risk. But his wise daughter unites creatures of the kingdom to save beauty and all natural life in a musical adventure of puppetry, masks and magic. Is redemption possible for rulers like Lear? With an ensemble of multi-talented musicians, actors and dancers, storytelling takes on wild expression and profound meaning.
