First performed in July of 2002, Scott Palmer’s powerful and haunting adaptation of Shakespeare’s bloodiest tragedy has been called “a fascinating and striking performance” by The Scotsman, and “a playing style powerfully fitting to this awesome tale” by the Edinburgh Guide. Using Japanese Kabuki-influenced movement and dance techniques accompanied by an original score by Tylor Neist of Red Sneaker Chamber Orchestra, the performance will star former Oregon Ballet Theatre principal dancer Anne Mueller as Lavinia, daughter of the Roman general Titus Andronicus. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see one of Palmer’s most moving, evocative and powerful adaptations of Shakespeare.
We’ll be performing Kabuki Titus outdoors at the Tom Hughes Civic Center Plaza in downtown Hillsboro, located on E. Main street between 1st and 2nd. Public parking is available at the SW Corner of the Civic Center off of SE Washington street & 1st Ave and some nearby street parking is also available.
Please bring blankets or folding chairs for your seating, and blankets and jackets for warmth in the evening. Picnics are allowed and encouraged, but no alcohol is permitted.
