Director, Lorna Velasco, remounts her inspired Shakespearean adaption, A PINOY MIDSUMMER, at Bindlestiff Studio, July 11-20. Last year’s world premiere run played to sold-out crowds for all 10 performances, and this return engagement promises to be one of the summer’s hottest tickets. As a special fundraiser for Bindlestiff Studio, the cast and crew have graciously devoted all tickets sales towards keeping the theatre running.
A PINOY MIDSUMMER is a re-imagining of William Shakespeare’s classic A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM, merging the classic text with bawdy Tagalog slang, Philippine folklore, shadow puppetry, movement, and traditional/modern Pilipino music. It begins in a world bound by class, law, and tradition; characters then find their way into the fairy world of the woods where European mythology meets Filipino folklore, where boundaries are rendered invisible and anything becomes possible. The stand-out performances of the hilarious Rude Mechanicals – presented here as Filipino laborers - add a layer of political satire and Vaudevillian flair to Shakespeare’s beloved comedy. A PINOY MIDSUMMER is truly an adaptation like none you’ve seen before.
