Astute, arresting and vital, Cheek by Jowl's Shakespeare productions have inspired audiences around the world. At their heart, 'vivid performances like a laser of light set the text ablaze' (Guardian) To save his life, Pericles must navigate stormy seas, pirates, brothels, incest, shipwrecks, human traffickers and tournaments. But as the fireworks dim, and chaos resolves, loss and love reveal themselves. Featuring Barbican Artistic Associate Cheek by Jowl's French ensemble, last seen here in the explosive Ubu Roi in 2014, Pericles is directed by Declan Donnellan, awarded the Golden Lion of Venice for his lifetime achievement in theatre. In collaboration with Nick Ormerod, they produce their first Shakespeare in French.
