THE TAMING OF THE SHREW

THE TAMING OF THE SHREW

I do not see The Taming of the Shrew as a comical taming manual. The play starts with a prologue. Sly is transferred into another reality and lets himself be persuaded that he is not Sly. Thus, a new world illusion is created. The problem of the relationship between reality and the theatre and art in general appears to be far more important. Reality is nothing else than a space to be filled with our creativity, in all objectivity it does not even exist, we only have what we create. The performance is about creativity, it is about creating the relationships we want. We may call the Sun the Moon, yet it will still be the Sun. In other words, the what is more important than the how. The play teaches us that the true dreams of our heart may come true. That’s it. After all, like any other work of art, theatre is a dream…
