Presented in English

Fake Escape's Venus and Adonis combined physical theatre, classical delivery and original music both live and recorded. Performed by an all-male company, the production (the first major stage adaptation of Shakespeare's narrative poem for over a decade) explored 21st century themes of gender fluidity and social conditioning. It was presented in association with We Are Proud as part of Bristol Pride and Bristol Shakespeare Festival.
