"Richard III" by Schaubühne Berlin (Germany)

Nature: Drama, Stage Productions
Organiser(s): Leisure and Cultural Services Department
Description: Richard III is the first in a line of Shakespearean villains known for his moral autonomy and virtuoso art of manipulation. The Director Thomas Ostermeier tackles this renowned play of Shakespeare's in a new translation by von Mayenburg that changes English verses into German prose to keep as close to the text's meaning as possible. Featuring live video, live drum music and puppetry, this traditional historical play is transformed into an extraordinary and avant-garde one that paints the portrait of a Richard III who is more than just a serial killer, which also reveals the instincts hidden inside every man.
