1024 Tempest

As part of Springboard Performance’s Front Lawn Dances 2015, kloetzel&co. created a new site-specific work, 1024 Tempest, for the household of place-maker Tamara Lee and family at 1024 1st Ave NW in Calgary. Based on Shakespeare’s well-known play, 1024 Tempest is a tongue-in-cheek look at the character of Ferdinand and his manipulation by three place-making ninjas who resemble the characters of Prospero, Ariel, and Caliban. With flying popcorn, tiki umbrellas, and a well-placed balcony, the ninjas fashion an Eden to Ferdinand’s great delight. At the close of the work, audiences were also invited to craft their own ornaments to adorn the newly appointed ‘SkakespeariTREE!
