“This re-reading of A Midsummer Night’s Dream is fresh, lively, quite sexy, and most important, hilarious.” Geneviève Bouchard, Le Soleil
Acrobatic dreamers dizzy with desire
A romantic romp in an enchanted forest on a midsummer night. Shakespeare at his most comical, imaginative and agile. A lively and energetic re-telling directed by Olivier Normand, featuring acrobats from the FLIP Fabrique circus troupe.
A jealous king, a flighty queen of the fairies, a quartet of lovers on the run, and a troupe of execrable actors cross paths in an enchanted kingdom, where mischievous Puck muddles thought and sparks passion with his love potion. From its Peter Pan-style prologue to its delightfully grotesque conclusion, Shakespeare’s best-loved comedy is dusted off, shaken out and invigorated by Olivier Normand, who uses the acrobatic skills of FLIP Fabrique and the music of Josué Beaucage to set a wonderfully dreamlike mood.
Performance is approximately 2 hours and 10 minutes with no intermission.
