Poetic romance from Shakespeare’s late work – a moving family story with a fairytale-like ending.

In his conciliatory and richly enduring work, Shakespeare impressively varies several of his great themes: rivalry, jealousy, power, intrigue, and young love. The fairytale elements of the original text are reproduced by the Shakespeare Company Berlin with lifelike puppets, while the dramatic scenes are a highly emotional chamber play. As in a sentimental centrifuge, figures, people from all walks of life, always seem to hurry half a turn behind events and find themselves in a state of constant state of emergency. Anyone who has survived the centrifugal forces alive has become another: changed, purified, humble.

Founded in 1999, the Shakespeare Company Berlin is a versatile and independent ensemble of artists that has built a self-governing, independent theater and guest performance company on its own. Since 2011 the company is based in the nature park Schöneberger Südgelände. As a theater collective, the SCB makes its artistic, human and economic decisions democratically.
