Shakespeare is back at the tnn
this fourth edition of the Shake Nice festival ! really takes our breath away!
A field hospital serves as the setting of a powerful and moving version of Henri V that has been transported to the battlefields of World War I. Close in its wake, the Tempest! surges forward: at its helm is Irina Brook who directs the Éclaireurs with Renato Giuliani, in a performance where burlesque rubs shoulders with fairy magic and where romanticism and the esoteric come together.
The charm offensive doesn’t stop there... Malvolio, the character humiliated in Twelfth Night, reveals all to Nice audiences in his funny and touching one-man-show, I Malvolio by Tim Crouch.
A Midsummer Night’s Dream also takes up residence. The Shakespearean classic leaves us spellbound with its blend of song, music and wit. A passion for words unites us in William’s Slam. This moving show combines Shakespearean texts and modern-day slam. The festival ends with a flourish: Freestyle! brings students together on projects that focus on a Shakespearean play... This year they will enchant us with A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Romeo & Juliet. Let the show begin!
All part of the festival...

European Shakespear Festivals Nework
Twelve European countries such as the United Kingdom, Poland, Armenia, Germany, Romania, France... gathered to pay tribute to Shakespeare. The network’s aim is to promote and share his work, develop new forms of theatre around his plays but also to bring and discover international companies in Europe. It is a real artistic and educational exchange. Beyond that, the ESFN offers the audience to discover Shakespeare through conferences, workshops, an opportunity to know the author differently.
Since 2017, the shake nice festival! has joined the network. He is the only French Shakespeare festival to be part of it.
With the participation of Passionnément TNN and l’OGCNice.
