The performance touches the human foundation in a wonderfully rewarding way… An abstract painting… Never before seen in this way.

Throughout life, we find ourselves in stormy weather. We dream about changes or even about becoming someone else. When the storm has settled, we must find our way back home. We see things in a new perspective, dream about new ways, new places, find ourselves in a new reality to which we must relate. Until the stormy weather hits again.
The Tempest is a contemporary dance performance about dreams and destinies. Being in the eye of the hurricane can be terrifying, but even when it seems darkest, it is possible to take control of your own destiny, to step out and find your way back home.
Glad Theatre and HamletScenen share the artistic vision that Inclusive Arts should have an equal position in the performing arts landscape. The Tempest is the first step in long-term artistic and political cooperation.
