Kill Shakespeare flies off the stage!

I was very fortunate to attend the G33K Art Show this past weekend in Kitchener, Ontario.  Not only did I have a blast on Saturday at my table, hosting two workshops and panels, and meeting up with some old friends, but I also was able to attend Friday’s night’s KILL SHAKESPEARE: REINVENTED, a multidisciplinary production of our stage show.

Despite technical difficulties (the artwork files could not be projected) it was a very fun show, with strong performances by the voice actors and interpretations of three key moments (the enchanting of the dagger by the Weird Sisters, a battle scene, and the reverse balcony) by circus performers.  The reverse balcony was especially inspired, and the music performed throughout was perhaps the best of any production performed (that I have seen myself).

Kudos to director/producer/performer Miroki Tong, as well as dramaturge Eric Weiss and the whole cast and crew. A great night!

Here are some pictures (most photos taken by Duncan Clemens):
