Staged at the Stratford Festival and named on many 2018 year-end critics “best of” lists, genre-defying director Robert Lepage's breathtaking production of Shakespeare’s Coriolanus explores the age-old tensions that still tear at the heart of democracy. The production stars André Sills, “a magnetic and imposing actor” (The New York Times), with a stellar cast delivering “performances that send shivers down the spine” (The Globe and Mail). Lepage takes the story of the rise and fall of a legendary general who must face off against the angry Roman mob and infuses it with the energy of Occupy Wall Street and the Arab Spring. “By resetting dialogue-heavy scenes as talk radio gabfests, and representing the uninformed mob as anonymous voices on social media, Robert Lepage helps clarify Shakespeare’s portrait of a world, like ours, overwhelmed with insincerity” (The New York Times). There's one visual surprise after another in this fast paced show, “a clear and cinematic version that’s riveting, invigorating and smart” (The Globe and Mail). Produced and directed for film by Barry Avrich.
