The Serpent Under It

What is truth? We live in a time where everything, even our sense of what is real, can be bought, sold and manipulated - and all behind the glossy emballage of consumerism, and garish colours of nationalism. This playful theatre laboratory explores the darker side of human nature, our vaulting ambitions and dances with devils, using texts and characters from plays such as King Lear, Richard III and Macbeth. By using the original language, none of Shakespeare’s timeless poetry and insight is lost in translation. More than 400 years after his death, the words of Shakespeare still ring true.

To beguile the time,
Look like the time. Bear welcome in your eye,
Your hand, your tongue. Look like th' innocent flower,
But be the serpent under ’t.
Lady Macbeth
