About the Show/Event
Information for Otelo at Southwark Playhouse, Inner London (Play). This fast, darkly funny and erotically-charged puppetry reimagining of Shakespeare's classic tragedy focuses on Desdemona's murder to explore Latin America's horrific record of femicide. More or less starting around the beginning of Act 4 of Shakespeare's play, Iago and Emilia join forces and minds to manipulate full-size mannequins, disembodied heads and Othello's jealous heart with terrifying results. This is a masterclass in object theatre and making classics relevant today by Chile's leading puppetry company who return to CASA after the critically acclaimed performances of Chef in 2011.
