The Tempest | Dhaka Theatre

'We are such stuff as dreams are made on' 

'We are such stuff as dreams are made on' 

From a land constantly troubled by water, enter Shakespeare’s mariners, wet and speaking Bangla. As well as pioneering new Bangladeshi drama, the Dhaka Theatre, Bangladesh’s most prominent theatre group, has staged The Merchant of Venice and Brecht’s The Resistable Rise of Arturo Ui. Often called Bengali, Bangla is one of London’s most widely spoken languages.

The production is a unique combination of Manipuri folk dance from Bangladesh along with traditional Bangladeshi folk songs. Starring Shimul Yousuf as Ariel, Shahiduzzaman Selim as Alonso and Kamal Bayzid as Stefano; and introducing Rubol Noor Lodi as Prospero and Esha Yousuf as Miranda. Directed by Dhaka Theatre founder and Ekusheh Padak award recipient, Nasir Uddin Yousuff.
