TSW Theatre
Associate programme - Passoverdance “The Taming of the Shrew” (Dance Drama)

Tang Shu-wing Theatre Studio brings a special presentation to you all - ‘Hong Kong International Shakespeare Performance Exchange’, featuring the Hong Kong premiere of two overseas creations - “Hamlet” (dance drama) and “Romeo and Juliet”(drama) – by Hong Kong casts. Alongside the festival’s associate programme created and presented by Passoverdance, “The Taming of the Shrew”, the programmes will be staged for three consecutive weeks in August. 


“The Taming of the Shrew” is one of Shakespeare’s most popular and yet most challenging plays. The story is about wealthy Baptista, who has two daughters. The youngest, ‘mild’ Bianca has many suitors, but Baptista will not accept any of them until her older ’wild’ sister Katherine has a husband. Hortensio, one of Bianca’s suitors, calls in some help from his friend Petruchio. Petruchio is a rough, brash and direct man who would marry any woman that brings him a good fortune. Waves of witty bickering and dark mind games ensue as Petruchio tries to “tame” his wife. 


For the first time, Pewan Chow, the artistic director of Passoverdance, is collaborating with the multi-talented choreographer Ivanhoe Lam. Two generations deconstruct Shakespeare's classic from different perspectives. Jump into the swirling currents of manipulation and sly resistance. Interrogate the rules of engagement through dance.


Who do you tame? Who tames you?
