The Dark Side of Love
– an intense and atmospheric experience featuring scenes from Hamlet, Othello and Romeo and Juliet, and performed in promenade by a cast of London and Brazilian teenagers.
‘Atmospheric projections throw images of the performers against the walls, and the performers throw each other through the air with a Pina Bausch-style abandon. The dark claustrophobic space with its many dead ends is massively atmospheric. It feels as if love has been bricked up in these tunnels and, by entering the space, the audience unleashes it, making private pain public. The young performers are astonishing: volatile but never out of control, searingly passionate and yet always forensic’. – Lyn Gardner, The Guardian
“..Simultaneously ethereal and edgy, traditional and modern…a feast of music, dance, projections and lighting.”- Whats On Stage
“Intensely performed, smartly staged…design, music, choreography, lighting and video all fuse together to sustain the spell.”
SDNA designed immersive projections for The Dark Side of Love – a Roundhouse & LIFT 2012 production in association with the Royal Shakespeare Company, directed by Companhia Bufomecânica performer Renato Rocha.
