ABOUT THE PROJECT
Do you believe in fairies? Love at first sight? Pinoy Midsummer is a reimagining of William Shakespeare’s classic A Midsummer Night’s Dream, merging the classical text with Tagalog, Philippine folklore, shadow puppetry, movement, Original Pinoy and Kulintang music. It begins in a world bounded by class, law and tradition.
Characters find their way into the fairy world of the woods where boundaries are rendered invisible, anything becomes possible, and events/choices/actions are unpredictable. The Filipino American cast and live music bring this strange land to life. Find yourself in the classics and then get lost in another world that is wild, fascinating, and freeing.
Come enjoy a Filipino adapted Shakespeare favorite.
