Forests is a new Shakespearean odyssey imagined by acclaimed European theatre director Calixto Bieito whose passionate and radical interpretations of classics have often stimulated controversy.
Composed from original verse from Shakespeare’s woodland and heath scenes, Forests takes audiences on a vivid theatrical journey from As You Like It’s forest of Arden, through the moving tress of Macbeth’s Birnam Wood, ending in the bare wilderness of King Lear’s cliffs of Dover.
Featuring an international cast including Catalan actors Josep Maria Pou, Roser Camí and English actor George Costigan, the production explores everything from the calmness of paradise to the fiery flames of hell.
Performed in English and Catalan with English surtitles.
