Cutting Ball Theater’s The Tempest To Continue Into December

San Francisco’s Cutting Ball Theater has announced the extension of The Tempest, its 11th season opener. The production was originally scheduled to close on November 28th but has added performances into mid-December.

The San Francisco Chronicle described the production as “a neat triangle.” The San Francisco Examiner called it “cleverly adapted” as well as “alluring.” Stage and Cinema stated that “Cutting Ball takes risks with Shakespeare’s words and the payoff is inspiring.” The Huffington Post agreed; “Melrose has been able to pull off a high concept yet minimalist reinterpretation of the ‘The Tempest’ with surprising effective scene changes that challenge the audience to ask if these changes took place in real time or in their minds. And the damn thing works!”

Rob Melrose, Cutting Ball’s Artistic Director asked “Why not mess with Shakespeare?” he explained that “Our version of The Tempest aims to illuminate the many connections between the characters and take more risks with Shakespeare’s text. We are looking to present a contemporary interpretation of the play that is in conversation with Sigmund Freud, Carl Jung, and the dream-like dramaturgy pioneered by August Strindberg, now found in the films of David Lynch, Tarsem Singh and Christopher Nolan, as well as the novels of Haruki Murakami, and video installations of Bill Viola.” He added that Cutting Ball has re-envisioned classic works for ten years.
