Following the success of last year’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’, Iris Theatre returned to St Paul’s Church, Covent Garden, with ‘As You Like It’. Set in the intimate gardens of this historic 17th century English church, this open-air production dove head first into Shakespeare’s celebration of romance and sexual license.
Included in the summer season was a unique sound installation by Filipe Gomes, a land-art by Tessa Battisti, infusing this central London landmark with the essence of the countryside.
