Iliria


YEAR : 2008 AUDIENCE : +12

Iliria is a show combining theater, music, movement and acrobatics, based on Shakespeare´s play ”Twelfth Night, or What You Will”. It is for adults and those age 12 and up. The text fuses with dance, mime, and aerial acrobatics silks, creating a visual and poetic backdrop upon which the comedy of the plot is developed. The presence of the music is key in accompanying the dynamic actions of the performers.

iliria deals with male and female identity, questioning who we are and who we appear to be. The characters loose themselves in multiple personality changes which cause them to doubt of their own identity. Iliria speaks of the ease with which we fall in and out of love.
