or “Rihanna’s true story” by director Marielle Pinsard is the adaptation of Shakespeare piece “The Tragedy of King Lear”. Apelab worked for nearly a year along with the crew on an interactive scenography mixing the actors and video projections which play along with each other on stage. Marielle Pinsard’s loose adaptation of King Lear features a tyrannical father, daughters who will do anything to bribe their father, and Rihanna, lost in the middle of a maze. Shakespeare hooks up with the queen of RnB where Elizabethan times rub shoulders with the 21st century!
The piece was presented at Arsenic theater in Lausanne and as part of the Festival de la Bâtie 2014 in Geneva.
