Time and space are transcended as we witness Cordelia, wrapped in memory, trapped in a shadowy world, bearing the weight of her own actions. This intimate echo of Shakespeare’s King Lear from Cordelia’s point of view is informed by the Japanese Noh “phantasmal warrior” play. Cordelia speaks to all of us who wonder how to be good to others while being true to ourselves.
For regular updates on different aspects of the production, see our “On The Bridgeway” blog.
Cordelia will be part of Soulographie fall 2012 for more info: http://www.soulographie.org
