Several hundred years in the future, a combination of cataclysmic events results in the extinction of the human race as we know it. Programmed with the complete works of Shakespeare as a guide to the nature of the human soul, what could go wrong when AI decides to recreate humanity?

"The way the sound production and lighting synchs – literally snaps to Carding and Carding to it (what’s Prospero to Carding, and Carding to it?)... It’s the tightest such synchronicity I’ve seen in any Fringe production. As expected it’s quite magical." Fringereview

I have had the pleasure of working with Dominique as a facilitator on several occasions and can highly recommend her. She has excellent communication skills, relates to people and has an inspiring creative mind. I’ve also seen her work as a director which is always clear, exciting and visually impressive. Dominique works hard and has a well prepared and composed approach.
