WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Belgian-Flemish director Jan Lauwers opens his decidedly deconstructionist King Lear with a vigorous postmodern dance, as his international ensemble (winners of an Obie award for Needcompany's 1999 Next Wave debut, Morning Song) move Shakespeare?s engrossing play from a seventeenth-century English castle to the contemporary world stage. Surtitles translate the Flemish text---a practical necessity during the final act when blaring rock music and jolting sounds of war obliterate the words.
