Complete Works: Table Top Shakespeare: At Home Episode 9–12

auf deiner Couch & Mousonturm Studio 1

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. Watch it either from your own sofa and display or in company in the cozy lounge of Mousonturm via stream.

To be or not to be!? The rest is silence.

02.10. Love’s Labour’s Lost: Robin Arthur

Tough rules for three bachelors: no sleep, no alcohol, no sex. But who can stick to that?

03.10. The Winter’s Tale: Cathy Naden

A jealous husband tyrannizes his wife, his child and his best friend. To get to a happy ending takes 16 years and the discovery of a coastline in “Bohemia”.

04.10. All’s Well That Ends Well: Claire Marshall

Helena is in love with Bertram. Then things get confusing: he runs away, she runs after him and he keeps running – he has a one night stand with Helena, though he doesn’t know she’s Helena until Helena confronts him with this knowledge. Then there’s a happy ending!
