This Last Tempest is the most recent of my regular collaborations with Uninvited Guests .
In this performance, desribed as “part theatre, part gig” by the company, Uninvited Guests take up the stories of Ariel and Caliban, just as Shakespeare’s The Tempest leaves them: alone on the island. Left to themselves, and finally given the freedom to “do anything”, Ariel and Caliban begin to consider what the future might hold.
That “part gig” desription is crucial, letting in a world of opportunity to create lighting which can be subtle one minute, and outrageously bold the next.
“A combination of intense imagery & high energy characterisation. Loved it. Boom!” – AUDIENCE MEMBER
The show is produced by Fuel, and continues to tour in 2016.
