Titus Andronicus 2.0 (HONGKONG)

Summer Shakespeare Festival Ostrava

This exceptional production had its premiere in Hong Kong in 2009 and it immediately celebrated success at home as well as abroad. Titus has travelled around the world and this year, we have a chance to introduce it in Ostrava thanks to the unique cooperation with the famous Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London.

The direction of the production focused on the essential element of theatre – the actor’s performance in front of the audience – only on a simple stage with seven actors and seven chairs, accompanied by live music. The actors alternate between the role of commentator and the action portrayal of their characters, while Titus carefully brings the audience into the world of human psyché, limitless imagination, self-reflection, self-discovery and reconcilation.

Titus Andronicus 2.0 is an adventurous journey back to the origin of theatre, to the beginnings of the eastern and western approaches to theatre through which incredible stories were told.

The show is presented in Chinese with English subtitles.
Duration: 1 hour 40 minutes (without a break)
