DESCRIPTION

CAPE THEATRE: WE CHOSE TO GO TO THE MOON (wip)

A performance about re-enactment, memories and perfection.

Two performers attempt to re-enact fragments of John F. Kennedy's life through their own imagination, to understand how someone strives for perfection.

How do you make a nation fall in love with you? How do you make an audience feel the same love in a performance?

Watch how two performers play one man's life to understand if he really did choose his destiny of going to the moon.

Memories are retold, re-enacted and created, in the hope of making new ones live on stage.

GUEN MURONI: BOUTIQUE

Olly and Rashan meet up in a cafe, in front of them: two coffees and a bouquet.

What seems like a declaration of love turns into a comic disaster. Olly, who hasn't been with a woman in a long time, has asked his mate Rashan to practice a first date.

CATH HOFFMANN: THE GLORY DAYS

Audio worlds, repetitive choreography, absurd interactions and ventriloquism aid the embodiment of personaes including dogs, monkeys, wild lovers and an obsessional woman dizzingly looking for clues about the world of human love, sex and separation.

With a slight nod to Gloria Swanson this is the beginnings of a visceral and claustrophobic performance being developed into a full piece for later on in the year.

THEA STANTON: ARLECCHINO

In Medieval times a performer wearing a Commedia Del Arte mask could not carry weapons, for having renounced his own identity, he was no longer deemed responsible for his actions...Arlecchino invites the audience into an intimate moment backstage, usually obscured from sight, when actor evolves from themselves into their character, becoming Harlequin.
