Living in the Tempest
Directed by John Crawford

May 4 – 5, 2018
8:00 pm
Irvine Barclay Theatre
A cutting-edge intermedia performance linking interactive digital media with music, dance and theatre. We use fragments from William Shakespeare's mystical masterwork The Tempest, along with other sources, as inspiration to reflect on relationships between humans and oceans. Taking notice of the developing planetary crisis driven by the rapidly evolving human capacity to alter ocean systems, Living in the Tempest responds to contrasts and complexities of the coastal interface using Shakespeare’s mysterious island as a jumping-off point.
