TITUS

Monash Shakespeare (MSC) Presents: 
 
TITUS 
 
Vengeance is in my heart, death in my hand, 
Blood and revenge are hammering in my head.
 
 

 

A new work devised from Shakespeare’s Titus Andronicus. Titus is unstable; a dangerous place where the boundaries between fiction and reality are blurred. It is a commentary on greed, power, honour and identity played through a political succession crisis. This is not a traditional Shakespeare. This is a radical reworking; a dehumanised distortion of reality.

  

There is no redemption here. Characters hide from the piercing scrutiny of the camera, which registers all. The low hum of a machine, the siren of a nearby alarm. Disaster. Surrounded by eyes. Cold scrutiny of a higher power. The flicker of cheap fluorescent tubes makes us sick. Association throws the work in the now and allows us to draw inferences from our zeitgeist. Australia 2015.

 

It’s certainly no utopia.
