'Man is a giddy thing.'
Part of the 2012 Globe to Globe Festival.
In the Cartoucherie de Vincennes outside Paris, sits a bold and enterprising venue, the Theatre de la Tempete. Clément Poirée's Hypermobile company is one of the principal groups who give this theatre its impressive reputation. Poirée's new production, running at la Tempete in winter 2011, is a bittersweet take on Much Ado About Nothing, set amid the hypertensions of an Italian restaurant.
Claudio loves Hero and Hero Claudio and nothing seems capable of keeping them apart. Claudio's friend Benedick loves Beatrice and Beatrice Benedick, but (because neither will admit it) nothing seems capable of bringing them together. Only the intrigues of a resentful prince force Benedick to prove his love for Beatrice.
