Tang Shu-wing's minimalist production of “Titus Andronicus“ opens this year with a maximum dialogue of completely new dimensions. In a powerful mixture of storytelling and physical theatre, the body of the actor is the most effective theatrical language in focus. On an empty stage with live music, 12 chairs and actors, Tang Shu-wing focuses on “Titus Adronicus“ as the very essence of theatre as a whole. The actors appear for the audience and tell a story. Titus and his sons triumphantly return from Rome with their gothic prisoners Tamora and her sons. His daughter Lavinia refuses to marry the new ruler Saturninus – he takes the gothic queen prisoner Tamora as his bride. In her new powerful position Tamora begins to plan her revenge on Titus, who in turn takes his own extreme measures...an absolute must for fans of the Globe.
