Lear

Approximate running time:

Theatre Three is proud to welcome local company Prism for a fall co-production in Theatre Too. Join Prism as they adapt one of English language’s greatest plays, all without uttering a single word. “Lear” is a beautiful and moving work of dance theater that focuses on the relationship between King Lear and her daughters. When King Lear is betrayed by her corrupted daughters Regan and Goneril, her sanity is sent into a tailspin, forcing her only faithful daughter Cordelia to take up the mantle and fight for her mother’s dignity and the fate of the kingdom.

Prism has filled an exciting niche in the Dallas theater scene with its original works. Here’s what they have to say: “We believe in storytelling through movement. Whether that be through dance choreography, stage combat, mime, weight sharing, clowning or simple everyday actions, we believe each motion is a piece of text. With this philosophy, we believe we can reach even more beautiful heights of artistic expression and plunge even further into the complex depths of the human subconscious all without uttering a single word.”
