Shakespeare vs Molière

Presented by: Indigo Moon Theatre & Compagnie Via Cane

Fri 10th Nov 2017

Price: £9.00

Running time: 50 minutes

Ages: 12+

 

If Shakespeare and Moliѐre were our contemporaries what would they
write about migrants today? A wave of migrants has landed on French and
English shores, all hoping for a better life. Grandeur and decadence, social
upheaval and love affairs are brought to life by a puppeteer from each
country, each in the role of a border guard… a highly visual bilingual
production, applying classic texts to very modern migration.
Using table–top puppetry, acting , objects, live cued music & projection,
this show concerns the migrant crisis and abuse of power … even more
relevant in today's political climate.. and puts into question the role of
Shakespearean witches reincarnated in the form of Weapons, Media and
Money.
"... brilliant puppetry for grown ups, very relevant to today's changing
world of National and International politics"
