Kaos Theatre presents
THIS PERFORMANCE TOOK PLACE IN 2008 Award-winning KAOS Theatre presents a fantastically lurid vision of Shakespeare’s classic play, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, plungeing this classic story into a contemporary urban cabaret of strip-clubs, pimps and pole-dancers, subverting all convention in true KAOS style. Take a trip into this surreal world of delirious dreams and discover a potion-pedalling, high-flying Puck; a pole-dancing Hermia; a transvestite Titania and an all-revealing Bottom! Atmospherically fuelled by a seductive and sultry jazz score performed live on stage with double bass, piano, trumpet, percussion and song, this dark, funny and playful production promises a visually provocative and very sexy show that will offer an eye-opening and original view on Shakespeare’s famous work.
