Carolina Crown 2016: RELENTLESS
“Vengeance is in my heart, death in my hand, Blood and revenge are hammering in my head." –William Shakespeare
Modeled after Shakespeare’s Hamlet, inspired by Homer’s Iliad, and borrowing from Goldman’s The Princess Bride, Carolina Crown weaves a tale of revenge through the visual and sonic perspective of a timeless Spaghetti Western.
Driven by sorrow and anger, the performers deliver initial heartbreak, a physical and emotional journey to right a wrong, and ultimately, the moment of truth . . . vigilante justice.
As this universal theme often demonstrates, the fire ignited by avenging the death of a loved one is a passion that cannot be slowed, stopped, nor denied. There is a machine-like pursuit with laser focus and existential purpose.
