‘One of the most profoundly moving theatre productions I have ever experienced.’

—The Herald, Scotland

This award-winning show from the Song of the Goat Theatre Company paints the tragic stories from King Lear in music, movement and song. The performers use folk instruments, haunting a cappella singing and flawless choreography to bring Shakespeare’s tale to life in an extraordinarily intimate and affecting way.

Based in Wroclaw, Song of the Goat Theatre Company travels the world with their polyphonic, breathtaking and visceral productions created by Grzegorz Bral.

Songs of Lear had its international premiere during Fringe Festival in Edinburgh in August 2012, where it received three prestigious awards.

ROKPA is currently carrying out aid projects in Nepal, South Africa, and Zimbabwe. Grzegorz Bral is President of the Board for ROKPA Polska.
