starkers Shakespeare en plein NYC air
On top of a hill in New York’s Central Park about a dozen women flit
about naked, as two more play a pagan folk tune on the violin and
acoustic guitar. The sunlight is slowly disappearing, and murmurs of the
oncoming cold are quieted as on the makeshift stage, a storm erupts.
This is an all-woman, fully nude, abridged adaptation of William Shakespeare’s final play The Tempest, performed in part to celebrate the
400th anniversary of the Bard’s death. Produced by the Outdoor Co-Ed Topless Pulp Fiction Appreciation Society (they go by Topless Book Club for short), this is the first of two consecutive performances.
Hope they take the weather into consideration.ReplyDelete
