Venture deeper into the modern metropolis, where conservative days turn into wonderous nights. Follow the curious and courageous Rosalind as she embarks on a pursuit of enlightenment, fuelled by love and oppression.

400 years on since Shakespeare wrote his iconic play As You Like It, what has changed in society? In this unique production created in collaboration with Korean dancers and artists, James Cousins asks ‘does a female still need to take on a stereotypical masculinity in order to find equality in our modern world’?
