The Seasons Alter

2002, 4 minutes

"And thorough this distemperature we see The Seasons Alter: hoary-headed frosts Fall in the fresh lap of the crimson rose, And on the old Hiems' thin and icy crown An odorous chaplet of sweet summer buds Is, as in mockery, set." William Shakespeare

The Seasons Alter is an adaptation of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, set in a contemporary setting. Taking the idea of sustainability/climate change whilst working with the text of Shakespeare, translated into modern times with projected imagery reflecting this archetypal world.
