The Tempest

  • Ethel M. Barber Theater 30 Arts Circle Drive Evanston, IL, 60208 United States (map)

Through movement, original music, and Shakespeare’s transcendent language, this 90 minute production re-imagines THE TEMPEST on a living, breathing island where its primal magic is conjured in the bodies and voices of a nine-actor ensemble. The omniscient Prospero stands apart, wielding the island’s power to manipulate monsters and spirits, kings and drunkards, a treacherous sibling and a daughter in love. But is Prospero’s ability to control the forces around him worth the isolation it brings?
