About Filter Theatre's Twelfth Night:
Following a decade of four critically acclaimed London runs, extensive UK tours and international festival appearances, Filter’s TWELFTH NIGHT performed in India for the first time between November-December 2015. The tour started from 24 November in New Delhi and travelled to seven cities ending with a performance in Mumbai on 18 December.
Olivia’s melancholic, puritanical household clashes head on with Sir Toby’s insatiable appetite for drunken debauchery. Orsino’s relentless pursuit of Olivia and Malvolio’s extraordinary transformation typify the madness of love in Illyria: land of make-believe and illusion.
This story of romance, satire and mistaken identity is crafted into one of the most exciting and accessible Shakespeare productions of recent years. Experience the madness of love in this heady world where riotous gig meets Shakespeare.
Filter approach this show with their trademark fusion of sound, music and narrative drive, creating live chemistry between actors, audience, text and sound that explodes into a vital and exhilarating theatrical experience.
