The play about the fictional Roman general Titus Andronicus is thought to be Shakespeare’s first tragedy, and is his most violent work. It is a story about revenge and cruelty set during the latter days of the Roman Empire, which has shocked and fascinated audiences since its first performance in 1594. This highly physical take on Shakespeare’s tragedy uses original as well as new text and is directed by New York City-based theatre artist Jung Han Kim, whose unique style will shape his interpretation of Shakespeare’s bloodiest play.

Director Jung Han Kim will devise Shakespeare’s classic with an international cast from three different continents. “I am interested in exploring what Shakespeare truly wanted to tell the audience through this cruel story, and discover its deeper meaning“, says Kim, “We will not only visualize but put breath and movement on the text to share what we felt when facing this play“. South Korean theatre artist Kim trained with renowned Living Theatre in New York and recently wrote and directed the play “Q“, which opened this month at Art One Theatre in Seoul to critical acclaim.
