It’s Shakespeare, but it’s not.
It’s theatre, but it’s not.
It’s live-streamed, but it’s not.
Six weeks ago, we set out to ask, ‘how do you keep making theatre, when theatres have closed down?’ It turns out – you don’t.
If This Be Nothing is a pandemic-induced exploration of what it means to stay indoors. Your most recent internet search history meets Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale in a story of how we stay connected in the face of ultimate confinement.
Twitch streams, cam girls, loose bears, makeup tutorials, Netflix quandaries and more: out of this web wormhole you’ll find some things you recognise and some things you don’t.
If This Be Nothing is a Montague Bbasement production created Lucinda Howes and Saro Lusty-Cavallari, and based on The Winter’s Tale by William Shakespeare.
