To read the four star reviews
The tale of the four bewitched lovers, the enchanted forest, mischievous Puck and hapless Bottom is much loved around the world.
Our characters blend traditional Chinese dramatic traditions with the world of digital technology enabling a range of bizarre and fantastic dream effects to be realised.
While the words of Shakespeare will be heard Mandarin, mime and music will also be used to convey the emotions and dramatic action of the play. The addition of a digital dimension to the play’s inherent contrasts between illusion and reality, waking and dreaming further highlights the question as to who really controls our fate.
