About This Show

Dancing Henry Five is a dance/theater after William Shakespeare’s Henry V using the recorded voices of Laurence Olivier and Christopher Plummer (among others) speaking sections of the text, with voice over narration by Valda Setterfield to the suite of music by William Walton. Eight performers attempt to dance the characters of the French and English courts and to stage the sea voyage and the battle of Agincourt.
