Te Rēhia Theatre Company – Performed by Regan Taylor
A dynamic interpretation of one of history’s great tragedies.
Shakespeare’s Othello, a story of racism, love, jealousy, betrayal, revenge and repentance, remains relevant to contemporary audiences and has been staged regularly around the world since it was first performed in 1604. It has also been the basis for numerous operatic, film and literary adaptations.
Watch Māori performance mask (Te Mata Kokako o Rēhia) come to life as Regan Taylor unfolds his abridged version of Othello as a solo performance. Set in Te Ao Māori, SolOthello weaves together Shakespeare’s original text, modern English and Te Reo Māori to deliver a dynamic and cheeky version of one of the great tragic plays.
… it’s a risk that only a highly skilled and confident actor would take on and Taylor is both of those. Ka pai! THEATREVIEW
