A Midsummer Night's Dream
“I have had a dream, past the wit of man to say what dream it was”
Inspired by Shakespeare’s classic, Kinetica’s 'A Midsummer Night’s Dream' immerses you in the dark and surreal world of the Athenian woods.
Titania is a gender-bending Fairy Queen, Puck is a grotesque acrobatic “hobgoblin” and 4 lovers create a literal aerial love tangle on the 4-person trapeze. As the story unfolds, Puck’s magical love potion causes mischief and unexpected transformations throughout the cast, whilst suspended acrobats surprise and enchant the audience with their spectacular circus acts.
It's dark and sexy with amazing acrobatics; a must-see at this year’s Fringe!
Kinetica is a contemporary circus company based in Perth, Western Australia, that specialises in fusing awe-inspiring aerial circus, contortion and acrobatics with quirky and darkly-comedic storytelling. Coming from an entirely SOLD OUT season in 2014 with their circus-burlesque collaboration REVEAL, Kinetica's 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' is sure to surprise, delight and amuse Fringe World audiences and lovers of circus and Shakespeare alike.
Join us for this classic tale with a circus twist and remember...
