Posted: Friday, January 4th, 2013

 

After a record breaking run at Bristol Old Vic, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, directed by Tom Morris in association with Handspring Puppet Company, also participated in The Spoleto Festival and The International Festival of Ideas in New Haven. It will be touring internationally during 2014, starting at The Barbican before travelling to Hong Kong, Boston, Washington DC and Los Angeles.

 

“There are moments of eerie delight as when the actors…start to tap softly on their respective planks and a flutter of sounds at different pitches gradually assembles into a syncopatedly seductive lullaby.”

Paul Taylor – The Independent

 

“In a beautiful sequence the cast tap upon those planks with rhythms that build into a fine piece of percussive music.”

Susannah Clapp – The Observer

 

“The strangeness is heightened by the Dave Price score…of drips, scratchings and mystic rustlings.”

Lyn Gardner – The Guardian

 

“The overall magic of the production is perfectly complemented by composer Dave Price’s beautiful music.”
