Summerhall Festival - Main Hall

Dance Physical Theatre and Circus

In this portrait of Shakespeare’s most beloved heroine – the curious and courageous Rosalind – rising star choreographer James Cousins asks whether women still need to emulate stereotypical masculinity to find equality in our modern world. Rosalind ventures through the modern metropolis – by day, ordered and traditional, by night, a neon wonderland. She is on a quest for enlightenment, driven by both love and oppression. ‘Hypnotic and beguiling’ ([i]Times[/i]). ‘Vivid and alive’ ([i]Guardian[/i]). Commissioned by the British Council as part of Shakespeare Lives. Co-commissioned by Arts Council Korea, The Place and Tramway, Glasgow.
