  Every human being is born with distrust, which bursts into flames even with a small touch of wind!

 Othello, in 2018, comes and goes between two battlegrounds; a real one, and a fictional one that only exists in his mind. Iago deceives Othello that Desdemona has fallen into love with Casssio. Without any proof, Othello, who has strong self-conviction, deludes himself that his wife is having an affair. As the imagination becomes reality, he ruins himself eventually. Theater Gabyun has developed Shakespeare’s Othello with its own comprehension and interpretation, as adding the word Nigredo, which means ‘conversion’, to the original title. 

Through <Othello Nigredo>, selected as the Barrier-free performance, we seek to break down the invisible barrier for communication with the audiences who have difficulties in theatergoing, as well as the boundary between the reality and fiction of Othello.
