by William Shakespeare
It is a historic event when Danish and Chinese actors, along with the world famous Shanghai Acrobat Troupe take the stage in a unique version of Shakespeare’s most inspired and last but one play.
Giacomo Ravicchio creates a spectacular and metamorphic set design, where the tempest rages itself out and the ship, with a grotesque army of clowns, is thrown ashore onto a mystical island occupied by weird, flying and snakelike creatures as well as magical, evil airy spirits. A war breaks out as two young people meet high above in the air to perform an acrobatic love dance between the forlorn shreds of the ship’s sails; thus pure forgiveness completely thwarts
a terrible plan for revenge.
