Rosalind, a dance reworking of Shakepeare’s As You Like It by UK dance group James Cousins Company and Korean dancers in Seoul, will be performed outside of South Korea for the very first time.

Rosalind explores the gender-fluidity of this Shakespeare’s work in contemporary East Asian society, relocating the rule-bound royal court and the free Forest of Arden to a modern East Asian city. By day, it͛s a conservative society; by night, it͛s a wonderland where people can be free, to be whoever they want to be and whomever they want to be with. 

During their visit to Indonesia, James Cousins Company will also work with students from participating universities and colleges to reinterpret Shakespeare’s As You Like It for contemporary Indonesia. 

The company is also performing in Jakarta.

  • First Performance - 16:00
  • Second Performance - 20:00

Free Performances. Sign up on the link above to attend.

The Rosalind programme in Indonesia is part of Shakespeare Lives, a global programme of events and activities celebrating Shakespeare͛s work throughout 2016, the 400th anniversary of his death.
