A venerable institution teams up with an upstart theater company to create an explosive, radically-cut, fast-paced version of Shakespeare’s comedy of mistaken identity in which nothing is hidden. Everything is revealed. The stage is awash with cables and instruments, costume changes occur in front of the audience and performance decisions are made on the hoof.
Combined, the live chemistry between actors, audience, text and sound explode into a vital and exhilarating theatrical experience. In Filter’s hands, Twelfth Night is constantly shifting and never the same twice.
“Filter’s lo-fi, 90min remix of Shakespeare’s comedy infects the audience with the play’s celebratory spirit of madness from the start…You leave feeling slightly changed yourself.” — The Metro (London)
