Compagnia de’ Colombari
Karin Coonrod

Her reign saw the rise of Shakespeare’s theater, but what did she have to say herself? Dissecting the persona of Elizabeth I through Joycean deconstructions of her letters, speeches, poems, and prayers, texts&beheadings/ElizabethR is Elizabethan drama in its most literal sense. Visionary Karin Coonrod and her international theater collective Compagnia de’ Colombari, working with designer John Conklin, cast four diverse young actresses as the different faces of the Virgin Queen. In a breathless game of hide-and-seek with history, mystery, and the theater form, this brand new work captures the rhetorical panache and ever-shifting essence of an icon.

Created and directed by Karin Coonrod
Dramaturgy and scenic design by John Conklin
Music by Gina Leishman
Costume design by Oana Botez
Lighting design by Peter Ksander
