Radical portrait reframes Cymbeline for our times
Shakespeare’s Globe London SE1
IN THE bridge of the Skepta song Shut Down a middle-class sounding voice proclaims: “A bunch of young men, all dressed in black, dancing extremely aggressively on stage. It made me feel so intimidated and it’s just not what I expect to see on prime-time TV.”
A version of that particular spectacle comes to mind in the closing moments of Matthew Dunster’s production of Imogen, in which he takes full advantage of the Globe’s newly-installed lighting and sound rig.
It’s a radical intervention, certainly, in this version of Shakespeare’s Cymbeline.
