"Tormentor. Mistress. Muse. The Datura Collective presents an adaptation of Shakespeare’s latter sonnets. As the romantic, loving fair maiden is stained jet black, a fixation that defies the poet’s reason takes hold. Combining his story with spoken word, music and dance the Sonnets are reimagined and woven together depicting a tale of love, lust and desire as Shakespeare’s elegant verse situates itself in a mire of sexual angst and betrayal."
