A Midsummer Night’s Dream, W. Shakespeare_ TNT-Moving

“A Midsummer Night’s Dream” is one of Shakespeare’s most unorthodox plays, as he takes great liberties with the composition, drawing realistic plots alongside dreamlike elements and developing scenes through song and dance, to the point that this has come to be considered “Shakespeare’s musical”.

What appears to be a paradox is that, in spite of being a work written to celebrate the solemn pledge of love, its central theme is, in fact, the volatile and whimsical feeling that love is, and even its animal-like irrationality. What this Shakespearean fable tells us is that love doesn’t solely depend on us, and if this truth affects us at any point in our lives it would be, without doubt, during our adolescence.

Interpreted by actors aged between 13 and 16 years, this show is a unique way of dealing with Shakespeare, using the energy of young people at risk of social exclusion, who lend a dynamic power, full of rhythm and music- that ranges from flamenco to hip-hop- to the characters of “the dream” led by Pepa Gamboa. These young people’s ability to move on stage can generate in the spectator the dreamlike feeling that Shakespeare evokes.

After the theatrical success in the whole country of La Casa de Bernarda Alba, interpreted by illiterate Roma women, TNT was commissioned by the European Union, through the Government of Andalusia, to put together a new project in the same line.

This project is part of the activities developed by the Municipality of Crotone in Calabria, in association with LIPA of Liverpool- centre sponsored by Paul McCartney- and the Ministry of Social Welfare of the Government of Andalusia which is supported by the TNT Centre for the realisation of the project.
