Photo Flash: Exclusive Photos from 'Coriolanus' from Shakespeare in the Square / Combative Theatre Co.

Shakespeare in the Square will present Coriolanus: From Man to Dragon - the debut production from the Combative Theatre Co. - for a limited engagement from November 4 to 20. The play by William Shakespeare is adapted by Omri Kadim and directed by Yuriy Pavlish. All performances take place at the new venue Italy Time Theatre (238 Bleecker Street, New York City). Check out exclusive photos below!

Coriolanus: From Man to Dragon is Omri Kadim's bold new vision for Shakespeare's play that incorporates his love of language and brutal, unadulterated violence. "Shakespeare's Coriolanus is a taut, political play about a man who is more gifted with the sword than with a turn of phrase," says the show's director Yuriy Pavlish. "What better way to express the crucial dramatic moments than with combat, movement, and kinetic storytelling? As I explore this principle with our ensemble of stage combat experts and fight directors, I am amazed at how the emotional truth of Shakespeare's original work shines."

The cast includes Felix Birdie, Patricia Black, Teresa Catherine, Christopher Dooly, Omri Kadim, Logan McCoy, Oliver Palmer, Jefferson Reardon, CrisTina Ramos, and Dylan J. Sampson. The fight core features Olivia Boren, Carter Gaylord, Frankie Li and Daniel Napolitano.

The show has costume design by Fan Zhang, lighting design by Timothy Meola and set design by Collin Medford. Abigail Wahl serves as assistant director. Mitch McCoy is the fight director.

Coriolanus: From Man to Dragon from the Combative Theatre Co. will run at the Italy Time Theatre (238 Bleecker Street, New York City) from Friday, November 4 through Sunday, November 20. The performance schedule is Friday and Saturday at 8:00 PM; Sunday at 2:00 PM; and Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7:00 PM. NOTE:There is no performance on Saturday, November 19.
