ED2012 Physical Review: Into The Fog (CalArts Festival Theater)

By | Published on Thursday 16 August 2012

As you take to your seat at Venue 13, the stage is set with discarded objects – battered suitcases, old wooden chairs, numerous books and five people glued to the spot; It’s like someone’s pressed pause on their action. The stage descends into darkness and as light re-emerges, this small community move, ever so slowly, downstage. There is sorrow, uncertainty, hope in their eyes but what’s their story? That’s where the books come in. As they gather to share these tales, there are no words, only sights and sounds. Close your eyes and it’s cinematic – open them again and poetry reveals itself in the choreography of the bodies on stage. Profoundly moving and totally absorbing, and a novel way to spend your evening.

Venue 13, 4-18 Aug, 7.00pm.
