“Rarely do the great questions of life present themselves on stage so spirited and full of feeling, so touching and allusive…. Absolutely remarkable.” —New Zurich Times
Internationally lauded German performance collective She She Pop deconstructs Shakespeare’s incisive tragedy, King Lear, for modern times. Performing with their real-life fathers, the collective exposes the funny, tender, and raw realities of generational conflict, parenthood, and love. Performed in German with English supertitles, this richly metaphorical and spontaneously absurd send-up of classic theater translates into a daringly honest work of reality performance that lays bare universal truths about us all.
