Notes on Loving, Much Ado About Nothing

Performance commences 7.45pm

Tickets £14.50 / Earlybird £12.50

Based on Shakespeare’s ‘Much Ado About Nothing’, ‘Notes on Loving, Much Ado About Nothing’ explores the many ways in which we overcomplicate, misunderstand, and mishandle romantic love. Set to music by both the 20th Century composer Erich Wolfgang Korngold and contemporary composer Jacob Fitzgerald, four live musicians accompany dancers Gabriella Engdahl and Emily Pahlawan Collinson, as they take us through the many ages, stages, and guises of romance, stripping down the layers to get at what lies beneath. A piece of dance-theatre that asks what all the fuss is about, and that reveals Shakespeare’s observations on love to be as relevant as ever.
