Song of The Goat Theatre online -vol 1- ISLAND/WYSPA
Updated: Mar 26
The title ISLAND is a lonely man with his desires, obsessions, longings.
In our interpretation, THE TEMPEST of William Shakespeare is happening in the imagination of a demented old man Prospero, who chained in his prison is dreaming and stargazing. Man betrayed and cheated lives only in dreams, which he creates himself. Prospero's imagination is poetic and magnetic. He creates all the characters that surround him; he is all of them at once and he does not see none of them at all. Imagination just like the myth creates the music and dance. Narrative of the old man is illogical, suggestive and cannot be easly described. Prospero tells about the experiences, dreams, which can not be fulfiled and the world that does not exist. Everything has a form of dancing and musical poems. For twelve years Prospero has been a prisoner and he tells twelve musical poems. The wonderful choreography is accompanied by acquiring vocal polyphony. A team of 19 performers shows the interior of the mad mind of a lonely old man. The Tempest is the last of Shakespeare's dramatic text written from the perspective of leaving behind the world. It is a metaphor and fable at the same time. Performance full of sadness and nostalgia is created by actors of the Song of the Goat Theater together with the dancers of acclaimed choreographer Iván Pérez. ISLAND is directed by Grzegorz Bral, and the author of songs and drama is Alicja Bral. Music prepared by Jean Claude Acquaviva, Maciej Rychły mixed together with traditional Georgian songs.
