This adaptation of A Midsummer Night’s Dream is above all a comedy. A kind of fairy tale vaudeville. A poetic and amorous epic in the Shakespearian forests, where passions and secrets are revealed, lovers are pursued in a crossroads with elves and fairies of a very special kind. For one night, male and female merge and exchange in a playful and uninhibited way. Nothing is true, nothing is false; everything is a dream or a lie…

Thursday 21 at 8pm meeting with the artists after the show.
