ALL IN/Performance/Theater

Since 2016 the British theatre collective Forced Entertainment brings the complete works of Shakespeare onto the stage and presented them to more than 35,0000 people., including Mousonturm in 2018. After having spent weeks separated by the recent lockdown, Forced Entertainment came up with the idea of replaying all the dramas once more as a nine-week online series using whatever was already in their own kitchens. Whether “Macbeth” (17.09.), “Romeo and Julia” (24.09.) or „King John“ (25.09.), all are performed with a full miniature cast in table top-format starring water bottle, razor blade and pillbox.

29.10. Twelfth Night or What You Will: Jerry Killick

But what do you want? Cesario loves Orsino. Orsino loves Olivia. Olivia loves Cesario. But Cesario isn’t really Cesario: she’s Viola.

30.10. Cymbeline: Terry O’Connor

Never heard of it?! A complex piece with those perennial favourites; faith, love and jealousy – only much crazier, which may be why hardly anyone dares direct it.

31.10. Julius Caesar: Robin Arthur

Total Rome: wicked, treacherous, murderous. Oh yes, and you too, Brutus.

01.11. Antony and Cleopatra: Cathy Naden

Romeo and Juliet, the grown-up version: they too fall in love, are thwarted and die of despair. Not because of Caesar.
