King Lear - Darwin Theatre Company

King Lear - Darwin Theatre Company


    Amphitheatre, George Brown Botanic Gardens, Darwin

    June, 1997

    A Darwin Theatre Company production in which Tracks artists take on key elements of design, soundtrack and assistance to the Director. 

    King Lear by William Shakespeare performed by a professional and amateur cast. Our connection with this production may seem odd for a dance company but it was in keeping with our multi-arts approach to our work. Tim worked primarily to push Patrick’s ideas into new areas. This included the choice of performance venue, design and general ideas. David worked primarily in the music and composition areas with DJ Space Ace, to create an innovative and original underscore for the entire play. The result was the audience seated on the amphitheatre stage, with action taking place on the forestage and the background hill.
