Now it is the time of night
That the graves, all gaping wide,
Every one lets forth his sprite,
In the church-way paths to glide.
And we fairies, that do run
By the triple Hecate’s team
From the presence of the sun,
Following darkness like a dream,
Now are frolic!’
Dance, movement and physicality come together with Shakespeare’s poetry to create an hour of darkness in which love is turned on its head and sexual desire causes mischief and surprise. theatre nomad’s reworking of Shakespeare’s play translates the audience to a very dark fairy kingdom indeed.
