What is it?
Following their seven week sell-out Rep Season, The Faction, winners of the Peter Brook Equity Ensemble Award 2011, are creating a pop-up open air venue in Brockwell Park near Brixton to present a new production of Othello and a revival of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
The Faction has taken over the copse in Brockwell Park to create an improvised auditorium underneath a canopy of trees – perfect for enjoying the summer evenings with a hamper of food, a picnic rug and a Shakespearean production – or two.
The Faction is an ensemble interpreting classical texts with a contemporary aesthetic to engage and excite local, national and international audiences, building a permanent ensemble with a rolling repertoire.
