Marin Shakespeare Company - Hey nonny nonny and wild Shakespeare!--Pacific Sun

The Tempest

Directed by Robert Currier

The Tempest - 1993


Producer’s Perspective:

For Robert Currier’s second production, he chose Shakespeare’s final play, the magical romance The Tempest. The play was set when it was written, in the early 1600’s, with the visitors to Prospero’s isle dressed in Jacobean costumes. The island itself was imagined to be off the coast of West Africa and its inhabitants were all African, with magic created by African drumming and dance. To assist with the production, we found the marvelous Danny Gorlin, an Ewe drum master from West Marin, and Gael Thompson, a delightful African dance teacher.
