International Shakespeare Festival, Gdansk; and The Lion and Unicorn, 2005
A jive-infused, feminist reworking of Measure for Measure. Music from the 1950′s evokes a period where generations clash over a loss of innocence and a new libertarianism. A rhizomatic approach to the work creates an eclectic and fast-paced version of Shakespeare’s classic problem play.
