We are such stuff as dreams are made on...
Be not afeard. The isle is full of noises...
Poised perfectly as a comparison study along side Margaret Atwood's "Hag seed" The Tempest is one of Shakespeare's plays most perfectly designed to be pulled in to the modern era, with easily translatable themes and components that are built for modern discourse. The Tempest provides a rare multi dimensional conglomeration of characters, scenario's, and themes as well as remaining digestible and fun for modern audiences.
Our interpretation of The Tempest embraces the idea of the stage and the theatre being a place of magic and wonder and utilizes effects and conventions plucked from through out performance history to help create a world of tricks and fun, with Punch and Judy style puppets, junk percussion, and vaudevillian stage tricks, we aim to create a world of analogue wonder on our very own island.
