This production, created for the International Shakespeare Festival in Craiova, Romania has invaded the streets and public buildings in the city center. Along with fellow band members it included more than 100 performers from the community who otherwise would not be able to participate or to be actively involved in the festival. The show was a “coctail” of circus, dance, parkour and running, music, snacks and songs – all of which are ways to tell the story to a size scale public.
