The Earth Shakes
Written for the HERON ensemble
Directed by Linnea Ingalls
September 8-18: 18th & Union – Seattle, Washington

Design by Sam Turner

HERON presents an ambitious original work by NYC playwright Samantha Cooper, loosely based on Shakespeare’s epic Antony and Cleopatra.

True to HERON’s unique multidisciplinary style, characters will be shared, shuffled, and traded between the ensemble of ten; modern choreography will be seamlessly woven into the script; original music will be performed live.

Equal parts pithy and poetic, hilarious and heartbreaking, The Earth Shakes reimagines the infamous couple as they set a collision-course toward each other, hurdling toward a future as catastrophic as it is inevitable.
