Titled ๐˜–๐˜ญ๐˜ฅ ๐˜“๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ณ, it is one of two main highlight performances in the festival, which also includes a photography exhibition and Butoh workshop.

This time, the ensemble intimately explores and reimagines characters and themes from Shakespeareโ€™s ๐˜’๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ ๐˜“๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ณ, and will also be collaborating with returning Japanese Butoh artist, Dai Matsuoka.

Through the words and perspectives of characters in ๐˜’๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ ๐˜“๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ณ, the production examines the struggles of human desire, and the role of human beings in relation to the universe. Through the spirit of โ€˜playโ€™ and Butoh, it seeks new distilled and heightened expressions of the complexities experienced in the original play.
