Flux's A Midsummer Night's Dream
This blog entry is meant to be a touchstone for Flux's upcoming production of A Midsummer Night's Dream. This main entry will focus on the larger questions we are asking and risks we are taking in our production; within this entry, links will bring you (our intrepid reader) to the details. By sharing our process openly, our hope is to more deeply engage our audience as we wrestle with this subtly challenging play. (And if you are so moved, you can purchase tickets here)
So here we go...
Flux Theatre Ensemble's production of A Midsummer Night's Dream explores this classic through the prism of Bottom and Titania's sublimely comic and deeply unsettling union. Flux uses actor-driven magic to set a fairy world of limitless possibility against a mortal world fraught with change and loss. The transcendence of desire bridges these worlds, and the transformative nature of love leaves none unchanged. Join Flux Theatre Ensemble for a dream that hath no bottom.
