“The course of true love never did run smooth.” Shakespeare weaves the rebellious lovers, rude mechanicals, and fairies into the woods and everyone is transformed. This production will cast a dada/surrealist light on this popular comedy of gender friction, identity confusion, and the push and pull of rationality and dream logic.
In this multi-media production we will re-imagine the fairy world for our time. High comedy, physical comedy, word play, structured improvisation, and performing with projections will be explored. Cross-gender casting is possible.
This course represents the hours of study both in and out of rehearsal necessary for artists to create a successful ensemble in performance. Rehearsals, technical rehearsals, and performances constitute the students’ commitment.
