Measure for Measure
A video-enhanced audio play combines the actors’ spoken word with vivid imagery. Celebrated theater-maker Henry Godinez stages Shakespeare’s searing exploration of sexual politics and social injustice amidst the turbulent times of 1959 Cuba, just before Castro takes power. Bold images mix with deft renditions of Shakespeare’s poetry—offering up a fiery examination of corruption and asking unsettling questions about the complex relationships between those in power and those they govern.
