Measure for Measure

Thank you to everyone involved in


Shakespeare holds the mirror to morality and immorality, power and innocence, truth and deception, honour and dishonour, love and rejection in “Measure for Measure”.

Measure for Measure

A Tropical Manga adaptation of Shakespeare’s darkly comic work.

This highly acclaimed Tropical Manga adaptation of Shakespeare’s ‘Measure for Measure’ featured layers of continuously evolving tableaux forming a moving background to the foregrounded scenes.  A diverse cast of Manga characters inhabited the cavernous interior of Tank 3 – creating a spectacular world for Shakespeare’s morally challenging story.

The production reflected the diverse tropical location, communities and lifestyles of the Far North.  It was inclusive arts practice at its best.  The cast and crew were drawn from international seasoned professionals, students, drama teachers, children and enthusiastic community actors with varying levels of experience who share a passion for the performing arts.
