Naked Shakespeare presents SIRENS

Tuesday - November, 07 @ 7:00pm

Naked Shakespeare is Acorn Productions’ acting company dedicated to presenting the works of the Bard in non-traditional venues without sets, lights, and costumes, in a style that hearkens back to the manner in which Shakespeare’s play were originally performed.  The company offers regular training sessions for professional actors in order to assist them in speaking the Bard’s best poetry in a style that highlights the imagery in the language.  Naked Shakespeare performances are designed to be accessible to all audience members, even those that are not familiar with his work.  The ambience and performance style encourage an intimate relationship between actor and audience that allows the language to take center stage and helps listeners find new meaning in the text.

SIRENS, adapted and directed by Sarah Barlow

Cursed to lure and entangle mortals with their magical songs or die if someone hears them and escapes, the Sirens of Greek mythology were fated to be pawns in their own lonely existence.  Shakespeare’s heroines often suffer the same fate, innocently attracting people and situations that ultimately lead to their sad demise.  This show features an all-female cast, incorporating music, mask work and movement to set the stage for these beautiful and tragic tales.  Show runs about 60 minutes.
