K I N G L E A R
by William Shakespeare
Little did King Lear know about the succession of events he would unchain after dividing his kingdom for the three of his daughters.
When an old system falls, a new one must flourish with the hope of not commiting the same mistakes than in the past.
In this version, the king’s palace finds itself in the middle of a construction site, witnessing its own decay. The overpowering madness of the ruler will open leaks and cracks, making the past foundations upon which the present sits crumble for ever.
