According to William Shakespeare, adaptation & directing Irina Brook. Shakespeare's incomparable text and the light and festive touch of Irina Brook create a show accessible to everyone, from soul storms to reconciliation.
With her inventiveness and contagious joy, Irina Brook revisits Shakespeare's Tempest in a new, young version, tailor-made for Les Éclaireurs and Renato Giuliani.
From the beginning of the play, a climate of rebellion is at its peak on the desert island, the place of exile for twenty years of the magician Prospero. The subjects of this little kingdom are on the brink of revolution, in spite of the Italian music full of gaiety and the tricks of magic. The young Miranda is bored to death and dreams of love. Caliban, a monster of the island and slave, no longer supports the daily tortures of the malicious gnomes sent by his master. Ariel, spirit of the air and devoted servant, awaits with feverishness the end of his contract. All dream of freedom. And Prospero dreams of vengeance. But forgiveness transforms all this little world. On a mandolin air and an atmosphere of Italian film, one finds oneself finally invaded by a deep emotion.
