Eight actors have memorized the entire script of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, and at this performance presented by immersive/experimental theater company Dacha, an audience member will roll the dice and decide who will play which character. Based on the premise, you might expect a harried and unfinished production, but this show does not follow the rules of logic. There's beautiful blocking and choreography, constant and clever improvisation, and characterization that rivals—even surpasses—Seattle Rep's 2007 production of Twelfe Night. Somehow, they even pull off stage combat. This is magic.
They'll perform at several venues around Seattle: the Russian Community Center on Capitol Hill (March 11, 12, 18, and 19), Rolling Bay Hall on Bainbridge Island (March 10), and The Slate Theater (March 17, 18, and 19). They'll also perform at the Seattle Center Armory as part of the Seattle Fringe Festival on March 23, March 25, March 31, and April 1.
