This enchanting retelling of Shakespeare's romantic farce A Midsummer Night's Dream sees the fairy king and queen, Oberon and Titania, recast as Korean wood sprites (Tokebi), their roles reversed, Puck as twins and Bottom a country-woman who turns into a pig. The tangled tale of four lovers is told through a blend of dance, percussion and mime intermingled with Korean language and folklore and is packed with visual humour and bursting with physical energy.
