King Lear

King Lear

... an imaginative translation into movement.

CHOREOGRAPHY: Igor Dobrovolskiy | MUSIC: Dimitri Shostakovich
The monumental story of pride, folly and broken dreams, King Lear is a fusion of theatre and dance. Company artists are joined by two actors in this original re-making of the tale.Set on the stark and melancholy scores of Dmitri Shostakovich, Igor Dobrovolskiy’s haunting interpretation of Shakespeare’s towering drama examines the perpetual balance between action and repercussion, arrogance and humanity. Dobrovolskiy collaborates once again with three stellar designers and an icon of Canadian theatre to create an ominous and sinister world, where false realities and vengeful traps yield devastating consequences.
