About This Clip

Sua Incelença Ricardo III (His Excellency Richard III)

Clowns de Shakespeare, a theatre company founded in Natal, Rio Grande do Norte, in 1993, combines elements of circus, of street theatre and of shakespearean dramaturgy, with a marked regional-cultural accent.  Working from a collaborative perspective, the group views itself as a research theater troupe that focuses on building the actor’s stage presence, musicality and body from the scene. Clown techniques are very much present in the group’s aesthetic, from the applying of traditional white face make-up to the wearing of the red nose and a clown half face mask, to the adopting of the clown’s lyricism and subversive logic. Clowns de Shakespeare creates a Brazilian “nordestina” re-reading of Shakespeare’s Richard III, with references to the Brazilian northeast region and British rock.
