Preview: Othello, c'est qui?

Harbourfront Centre’s World Stage season begins by shaking up Shakespeare with the North American premiere of Othello, c’est qui (Othello, who’s that) by German production company Gintersdorferand/Klaßen, Feb. 6-9, 2013.

Performed by Franck Edmond Yao (Ivory Coast) and Cornelia Dörr (Germany) in both English and French, the actors parody one of The Bard’s most controversial plays.  Together they pull apart themes of colonialism, migration, religion and politics in an urgent, seemingly improvised way.  Sharp, provocative and sensual, Othello, c’est qui? premieres during Black History Month at Harbourfront Centre’s Enwave Theatre.
