‘”The play has this darkness and danger,” she [Julie Taymor] explains about what is generally considered one of Shakespeare’s most enchanted comedies. “It is night. It’s midsummer and shadows are lurking, transforming as the moonlight hits. We play with fabrics. All these ideas come from sleep, from a bedsheet, a dreamscape for humans and forest children … The children are not just fairies. They are natural forces, the wild element, part of what it means to be human.”‘
