EVENT DESCRIPTION

Featuring an all-female cast with no dialogue, Tang Shu-wing’s new interpretation of King Lear is a non-verbal theatre that transcends the boundaries of Shakespeare’s plays but remains quintessentially Shakespearean.

An international cast from Hong Kong and the National Theatre Marin Sorescu of Craiova promises to deliver a rarely seen and provocative performance of this classic, built on a highly minimalistic and stylised aesthetics created by a team of visionary artists from the city of Hong Kong.

Premiered in Hong Kong in 2021, King Lear toured to Shanghai in 2023, followed by more touring performances in London, Berlin and Craiova in May 2024. This critically-acclaimed production is set to return to Hong Kong this June as the opening performance of the Hong Kong International Shakespeare Festival.
