THESE MORTALS BE
An inventive retelling of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream performed as a series of tableau vivantes (living pictures) by a group of formerly incarcerated women.
The project is a collaboration between The Circle Project and Vancouver artist Adad Hannah.
The Dreaming is an interactive audio documentary that provides an intimate encounter with formerly incarcerated women as they recount their dreams. The Dreaming evolved out of What Fools These Mortals Be, a loose retelling of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream and takes us into the dream worlds of our performers.
