ETG 2023: The Tempest – Publicity Designer

15:30, Tue 5th December 2023 at De Koelisse, Leuven (BEL)

Following the success of last year's Hamlet, ETG is back for 2023 with a production of The Tempest.

A tale of power, magic, betrayal, love, and redemption, The Tempest is one of Shakespeare’s most famous and bewitching comedies. This enchanting story follows Prospero, a powerful sorcerer who was wrongfully stripped of her title and exiled to a remote island. With the help of spirits and monsters, Prospero conjures a tempest that brings her enemies to the island’s shores. As the storms of revenge fasten their grip, lovers embrace, fools plot murder, and Prospero holds the fate of all in her hands.

Our interpretation of this classic text invites the audience to re-imagine Prospero as a tortured artist, painting a tale of romance, political intrigue, and revenge through her magic. We see the world through Prospero’s eyes as she distorts reality to manipulate both the audience and the characters in the story. This production evokes expressionist art in both costume and set, reflecting how Prospero has subjectively moulded the spectacle, full of colour, music, and dance, that unfolds before us.

Founded in 1957 by a group of students including Derek Jacobi and Trevor Nunn, ETG is an all-student theatre company that tours Europe with a Shakespeare play at the start of the Christmas holidays every year. Last year’s tour went to Antwerp, Leuven, Tübingen, Konstanz, Bern, and London, before coming to Cambridge for a run at the ADC Theatre in January.
