“A streamlined version of Shakespeare’s play. It shakes us up, lets us see the play anew”

Joan Acocella/The New Yorker


John Scott’s Lear is a  deeply personal and riveting interpretation of Shakespear’s masterpiece.

King Lear is portrayed by New York dance legend Valda Setterfield, noted for her work with David Gordon Pick Up Company and as a soloist for Merce Cunningham. Setterfield gives a profoundly moving performance that explores the unraveling of a universe, parental love, fear of death, personal transformation and enlightenment. Toppling the hierarchy with Goneril, Regan and Cordelia portrayed by three men, including Irish dancers Ryan O’Neill and Mufutau Yusuf and young French dancer Kevin Coquelard.

Lear was commissioned by Kilkenny Arts Festival 2014. Supported by Culture Ireland.

“A timely and tender exploration of aging, loss and regret that gets to the very heart of who we are.”
