Little Dove Theatre Art returns to the stage after numerous sell-out seasons of their debut work Six Women Standing in Front of a White Wall to present this bold new work. Tapping into eternal themes of love, family and mortality, director Chenoeh Miller has created an immersive visual, live art experience driven by the stories and tribulations of a twisted royal family plagued by secrets and jealousy. Serving as a contemporary prequel to Shakespeare’s iconic King Lear, Cordelia follows three sisters through the eyes of the King of France, navigating their way through a harrowing dreamlike retelling of their pasts. Cordelia extends on Miller’s bold, visual and experiential theatre style by amalgamating exquisite imagery, wild storytelling, ironic humor, heightened physical spectacle and images and sounds from an 80’s childhood. What results is a time-warped world that swirls in and out of the past, present and future, illuminating a young woman’s journey to love, truth and freedom.
