The Tempest

Are we such stuff as dreams are made on, and is our little life rounded with a sleep? This 2nd year Excelsia College tragi-comic production, through LeCoq-inspired physical theatre interwoven with elements of the Bunraku puppet theatre tradition of Japan, will play out these themes of power, colonisation, truth, and human vulnerability.

Saturday 2:00PM
