The Tempest
Aug 25, 18:00; Rosenborg Castle gardens, Cph K; 100-265kr, adg-europe.coms

Enjoy more Shakespeare-in-a-castle when a Munich-based troupe, the American Drama Group Europe, performs Paul Stebbing’s adaptation of The Tempest in the grounds of Rosenborg Slot. It’s a pit-stop on their annual Castle Tour of theatrical performances at stunning settings across Europe.

The Shakespearean drama takes place on a remote island, where after a storm, a royal ship carrying the king of Naples is run aground. Trouble ensues between the shipwrecked party and the island’s local inhabitants: the magician Prospero, his daughter Miranda, the sprite Ariel and the feisty native Caliban. (AC)

A nightmarish look inside the laboratory of Anders Christiansen. In his solo performance, he constructs a ghoulish frankenstein-like form using just mud, old newspapers and, more worryingly, bits of found hair. (AC)
