NTW21 - Coriolan/us

8-11 and 15-18 August 2012


Directed by

From the team that created our startling version of Aeschylus’s The Persians on the military training ranges of mid-Wales, the story of Caius Martius – Coriolanus – is re-imagined in the era of 24-hour news, of celebrity culture, and of a new global politics.

In association with the Royal Shakespeare Company. Commissioned for the World Shakespeare Festival, which is produced by the Royal Shakespeare Company for London 2012 Festival.

These snapshots are brilliant Mike - pulled right back there, but with the camera's gaze - extremely powerful... I'm on the phone to Film Agency Wales right now...! x

Not been to a 'promenade performance' show before, so pretty exciting experience, following the action, catching some of it on the live feed. A combination of viscerally and mentally stimulating moments in a brilliant and atmospheric performance space. Somehow feel I now want to see something called 'Hangar 858' too. Though its nothing to do with the play in question, was eerily 'sci-fi' to see audience sometimes silhouetted as we walked around, with red and blue lights flashing on our headphones (which were totally crucial to the experience, keeping the voices of the performers with us, wherever we happened to be in relation to the action). Recommend it highly, for taking Shakespeare off the traditional stage setting, and into its own all enveloping dimension, aided and abetted brilliantly by the way the hangar setting created closeness too, and sometimes distance from, the action of each moment.

Here's a handy picture of the signs you need to look out for on your way to the hangar:
