This exciting co-production between The Electric Sunshine Project, House of Wingz and Blackpool & Fylde School of Arts is set to be a fast-paced, fun-filled version of Shakespeare’s most enjoyable comedy; A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
TESP performers will bring to life the hard-handed mechanicals and bring to their play-within-a-play all the elements that have made their performances so popular to date (puppets, original music, ensemble theatre-making), HoW inimitable street dance energy will electrify the world of the fairies where there’s sure to be enough tricks and spins you’ll think they’re actually flying, and BA Acting students will perform the parts of the lovers where the course of true love does definitely not run smooth.
All three worlds will come together somewhere in the 1980s, and bring with them a broad range of influences from that era including vogue ballroom culture, striking workers, yuppies, gender-fluidity and neon. What’s not to enjoy…!
