As you know the plot of Ashton’s THE DREAM comes from Shakespeare’s A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM. For Ashton’s interpretation the choreography more than suggests what is going on. But there are some passages of mime in THE DREAM. I thought it might be good to share some of the mime with you. For our first example you will see photos of Romi Beppu and Arolyn Williams as Titania, The Fairie Queen. Titania has just spent the night with the Donkey – Bottom and she is trying to explain this to Oberon.
Look for more mime passages before we open!
