Shakesperience presents “Optical Delusions”
June 11 @ 7:00 pm
In anticipation of this summer’s production of Comedy of Errors by Shakespeare in the Park in Washington, CT, Friends of Shakesperience in the Litchfield Hills, together with Shakesperience Productions, will hold a talk and visual presentation led by Emily Mattina, Director of Shakesperience Productions, entitled Optical Delusions. This presentation will take place at the Woodbury Public Library on Tuesday, June 11 at 7:00 pm.
Join Emily as she discusses the underlying themes found in Comedy of Errors and to understand the family friendly interpretation of this Shakespearean comedy. Her presentation is a conversation on science and art, comedy and catharsis, symmetry and duality, double revelation and double dilemmas.
Emily Mattina’s interpretation of the play asks the question, “Does your identity shape your perspective or does your perspective create your identity?” Imagine two sets of twins, separated at birth; how might their different experiences determine their personalities, their relationships, their unique views of the world? Guided by her production of Comedy of Errors, Mattina leads a discussion that asks, ‘Who is there?’ when we look in the mirror.”
