Polish director Grzegorz Bral and Song of the Goat Theater will bring their award-winning show to Beijing.
With 12 women and men performers wearing simple, black outfits while chanting and weaving raw physicality and emotion, Songs of Lear is based on William Shakespeare's tragedy, King Lear, and composed by Jean-Claude Acquaviva and Maciej Rychly.
With the performers using folk instruments, cappella singing in Latin, English and Polish, and choreography, the performance showcases the madness, despair, disappointment, love of the characters.
Since it premiered at the 2012 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where it received three awards, including a UK Musical Theater Matters Special Award, Songs of Lear is a constantly evolving creative research project in which audience may witness a very intimate artistic process.
