Enter Several Strange Shapes, Bringing in a Banquet, a deconstruction of Shakespeare’s The Tempest, is a genre-bending work playing with elements of dance, theatre, performance art and multi-media. Utilizing none of the characters of the original work of Shakespeare, the play instead builds a world from the themes and metaphors of The Tempest, creating a new myth altogether.
Enter Several Strange Shapes, Bringing in a Banquet exists across platforms – in-person performance and using a digital interface that pushes the level of interaction into the audience’s own intimate imagination. Through an extensive movement score, live and pre-recorded dialogue and soundscapes, the show invites audiences to celebrate their own imaginations along with a return to public space, while also creating a surreal environment for escape.
This production is part of AT&T Performing Arts Center's Elevator Project. It will take place in the Studio Theatre at the Wyly Theatre.
