A fresh, raw and energetic performance of one of Shakespeare’s earliest comedies tells the tale of friendship, love and betrayal.

Best friends Valentine and Proteus travel to Milan and find themselves caught in a love triangle with the daughter of the Duke. Proteus’ beloved from home follows him to Milan disguised as a boy, only to discover she has been betrayed...

The performers use their bodies to create a continually changing tableau that forms a playful backdrop to the drama. Traditional Brazilian song punctuates the production, supported by a trio of onstage musicians.
