The Tempest by Wm Shakespeare

Presented by The Secret Theatre in association with LIC-A

This exciting production of The Tempest will be unlike any you've seen before!

Producer Stephanie Wilson & Artistic Director/Producer Richard Mazda in association with LIC-Artists present an immersive production of The Tempest, performed in the Plaxall Gallery in Long Island City, NY.

The production features an Ariel on silks, a dance company, projections, and a huge playing area where scenes will move around the space with the audience following the action.

Directed by Owen Thompson, the production incorporates a dance company choreographed by the incredible Shoko Tamai of Ninja Ballet, and projection design by Sadah Espii Proctor.

The production also features a concurrent art exhibition titled "…dream again" and curated by The Plaxall Gallery’s Norma Homberg. 


The Tempest is a play by William Shakespeare, probably written in 1610–1611, and thought to be one of the last plays that Shakespeare wrote alone. After the first scene, which takes place on a ship at sea during a tempest, the rest of the story is set on a remote island, where the sorcerer Prospero (Richard Mazda), a complex and contradictory character, lives with his daughter, Miranda (Joy Donze), and his two servants, Caliban (Zachary C Clark), a savage monster figure, and Ariel, an airy spirit.


The play contains music and songs that evoke the spirit of enchantment on the island.
