The wonder and humorous magic of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream will come to Kaslo this Canada Day weekend. The inaugural Kaslo Shakespeare Festival presents this classic tale of lovers, clowns and fairies at the Langham Theatre on Saturday, July 2, 7 p.m. and Sunday, July 3, 3 p.m.
Under the direction of Wendy Poer, a group of local actors, movement artists (eurythmists), and a recorder ensemble have come together to bring this timeless masterpiece to life.
Acting and the art of Eurythmy are interwoven in this play to picture forth the mysterious relations between the fairy and human worlds so ingeniously depicted by Shakespeare. Eurythmy, a movement art created by Rudolf Steiner, makes visible the spoken word and musical tone through imaginatively choreographed gestures, revealing the creative forces in human speech.
Come join us for this magical summer moment of comedy and catharsis where dreams come true. We hope this performance can bring the wonder of what it means to be a human being.
For more information call 250-353-7675. Tickets are $15 and are available at the Eurythmy Studio and Bookstore and Sunnyside Naturals in Kaslo. The Langham Theatre is located at 447 A Ave. in Kaslo.
