A fresh, figurative and quit different puppet show version of Othello, with dramatic focus on Shakespeare’s political rapture.
"***** for Othello - s delight for the eye - a bit of a business"
- CPH Culture
Two political spin-doctors meet to make an account over a chess-party. On the game board, there is no room for any scruples, and the nasty story unfolds - about how the sneaky Jago with dirty tricks and fatal lies distorts the head of the naive Othello - just to reach the top of power.
And it is Shakespeare - nobody is spared, there are no winner, everybody dies.
In short - half an hour's serious, nonverbal entertainment for the whole family!
