A Shakespeare
you've never seen
Ilya Motov (immersive show "Faceless") in collaboration with fashion stylist Anna Guseva creates energetic production of one of the most passionate of all the Shakespeare's comedies "The Taming of the Shrew" in close connection with its Italian sources, combining elements of Renaissance theater with modern theatrical trends.

Love stories of Bianca and Lucentio, Katharina and Petruchio unfold among characters of commedia dell'arte – a classic Italian theatrical form. Sublime Shakespearean comedy with improvisation and bright humour performed by electrifying young actors will not leave anyone unmoved.
