In recent years Takuro Suzuki has been making his mark as a choreographer, director and dancer in a wide range of projects. Now he has audaciously dismantled and reconstructed Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night according to his unique vision and interpretation. Based on the famous comic play with its tangle of misdirection and misunderstandings, this production crosses between dance, theatre, imagery, music and more to create a powerful entertainment that is both highly original and accessible for people of all ages.
