An Installation and Performance celebrating Shakespeare's First Folio, which is full of misspellings and seemingly random Capitalizations.
Using First Folio in performance generates some of the most vibrant, fast moving, and clear sounding Shakespeare you’ll ever see.
In our two-week A.P.E. residency, we’ll create an installation that brings Folio to life. It includes an evolving table of objects and writings, a film about the rules of rhetoric, words on walls with encouragement to speak them out loud, a daily opportunity to mine the text of Twelfth Night at the table with the director, Sheila Siragusa, and the cast, as well as open rehearsals in the evening.
We’ll offer four performances of Twelfth Night, over the two weekends of the residency. Directed by Sheila Siragusa, with fight Choreography by Steve Angel. Rachel Braidman as Viola, The Doomsday Ladies’ frontman Tom Shread as Orsino, and Claire Kavanah as Olivia.
