***Comfortable sport shoes are suggested***

Shakespeare, Summer Nights – Variations, this season’s premiere, pays tribute to the author the whole world is honouring this year, but in a special way. It will take the viewer on a theatrical tour of the natural stages of the island, while at the same time drawing heavily on Shakespeare’s Sonnets, elements of royal chronicles, tragedies, and mythical love scenes. Words, movements and music will transport us on this “journey” aimed at demonstrating the English playwright’s contemporariness. With selected themes and motifs it speaks about the (anti)social circumstances affecting us, about refugees, about those in power and those replacing them, and about individuals lost in turbulent times in search of their own identity. Shakespeare is indeed painfully topical, unabashedly modern and ever so familiar to us. For even today “Mousetraps” are used to unmask the guilty, top positions are seized through fraud, people disappear in shipwrecks, and tempests still create new Calibans.
