plot of this performance consists of four plays of William
Shakespeare. These are: “The Tempest”, “Romeo and Juliet”, “Summer
Night’s Dream” and “Hamlet”. The main character of the performance
is Prospero, who, as a human, has earthy and heavenly power. One has
to meet it’s own Prospero, who are the symbol of kindness and good
ideas. Prospero created actors, who got muse from the heavens and
started playing scenes from Shakespeare’s plays. All world turn into
the theatre, where all people are actors. Dynamic music, colorful
and bright costumes, masks, scenes with high-heeled shoes, which are
created in a genre of comedy-de larte… All these gave a performance
interesting decision. Having come to see the performance, you will
be got together with the actors into lyrical, comedian and dramatic
situations, of which William Shakespeare thought 400 years ago..
A “Night of the
theatres”. Shakespeare in an innovative format.
"To meet Prospero" by Lviv Theatre Voskresinnia
in the Common Theatre in Radom. Who was not on
Saturday night in the Jagiellonian square should
regret. A circus, ballet or theatre? - Viewers
could have doubts. Lviv actors with a passion
not only the role played by Shakespeare
characters, but also danced, with extraordinary
lightness marched on stilts and perform stunts
on poles. During the whole performance was not
mentioned a word, but the film language replaced
successfully the complicated scenery, strange
recoiling machine, colorful costumes and actors.
The biggest impression on audiences did special
effects with fire, fireworks, colorful ribbons
Radom had already known of Lviv artists. In
April they went to with the performance of
"Job" by the drama of Karol Wojtyla, and in
May, with "Gloria" open air show.
"To Meet Prospero" is a combination of
Shakespeare's dramas: "The Tempest", "Midsummer
Night's Dream," "Romeo and Juliet" and "Hamlet".
This is the Polish premiere of the show. Radom,
June 15, 2009
(...) Finally, the finale - Ukrainian Theatre
Voskresinnia with a street show "To Meet
Prospero." I confess frankly that I do not
belong to this special kind of theatre
enthusiasts. Too close for me from here to the
street or simply juggling circus. All of these
fires, smoke, fireworks, streamers, stilt
walkers and jugglers. All this (and more yet)
was the spectacle of the Lviv team, sometimes
you can almost feel the excess. But persevering
in this presentation without pain. What's more -
I appreciate the artistic beauty of its
unquestionable and very good music and being
able to establish the "Tempest," "Midsummer
Night's Dream," "Romeo and Juliet" and "Hamlet,"
and so the works of Shakespeare, which were the
inspiration for artists. And invite this show
was worth it for this reason that, for some of
the audience may be an incentive to make the
next step toward the theatre.
