Tamburlaine

Tamburlaine

1 no. saves icon · Contemporary

A lowly shepherd rises to power – and conquers half the known world.

Overview

Tamburlaine is a breathtaking interrogation of power, masculinity and the limits of violence.

In his new adaptation for Yellow Earth theatre company, Ng Choon Ping directs a startling production with a British East Asian cast and live taiko drumming. Lourdes Faberes makes her Arcola debut as Tamburlaine.

As ‘strongman’ leaders exert their influence, and new power from the East asserts its growing dominance, Christopher Marlowe’s classic tale takes on a new urgency and relevance for our time.
