About the event
In an unconventional distance learning institution, where the students who hide behind screen names more often than not become the teacher, an anxiety ridden pupil, O, tries to find a connection to save her from her thoughts and herself. A cross pollination of Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet, Hamlet, & The Tempest, Too Solid Flesh written by Megan Lohne and directed by Shoshanah Tarkow explores youth in the midst of pandemic, connection across screens, and the dangerous undiscovered country of mental health in a world where it is lethal to touch.
Utilizing emerging technologies, Like Fresh Skin creates text-based immersive theatrical experiences that champion untold feminist stories.
Born from a question and answer session with students from Adelphi University who have recently been displaced from their classrooms to their homes, Too Solid Flesh utilizes live performance, pre-recorded segments, app integration, and more to create a truly unique online experience which is both interactive and immersive.
If you seek escape, entertainment, raw reality, and the wit of Shakespeare himself, this is the moment for you. We invite you on the journey that is Too Solid Flesh.
