Theatre Three and Prism Movement Theatre present Lear
Theatre Three will collaborate with local company Prism for a fall co-production in Theatre Too. Lear is a beautiful and moving work of dance theater that focuses on the relationship between King Lear and his daughters. When King Lear is betrayed by his corrupted daughters Regan and Goneril, his sanity is sent into a tailspin, forcing his only faithful daughter Cordelia to take up the mantle and fight for her father's dignity and the fate of the kingdom.
Prism believes in storytelling through movement, whether that's through dance choreography, stage combat, mime, weight sharing, clowning or simple everyday actions. In their productions, each motion is a piece of text, plunging the complex depths of the human subconscious without uttering a single word.
