This piece explores the mind and persona of Shakespeare’s most enigmatic protagonist, Prospero, by investigating the dramatic ramifications of sound patterning in Shakespeare’s poetry—what Peter Brook has referred to as the “verbal music” – to expose the sonic portrait embedded in the play’s knotted, ornate and ethereal language. Through live projection, video artist Ben Glover creates an intricate and expansive ‘island of language’ – a visual expression of the soundscape, and of the sonic patterning in the poetry.
