ED2012 Theatre Review: Pages From The Book Of… (50 Letters Theatre Company)

By | Published on Tuesday 21 August 2012

Josef is searching for his dead father in the eerie Sanatorium. A place where the past can be returned to and relived, as such time becomes meaningless. This avant-garde piece of theatre, in the style of Tadeusz Kantor, confronts its audience with a spiral of uncertainty, forcing them to question reality, life and death. This air of confusion can be disconcerting, but the deeply compelling, visual and aural spectacle can still be enjoyed and admired. The Chorus of highly talented actors free themselves from natural inhibitions and use movement and sound to create a train, clucking hens and an eclectic carousel of mannequins. All movements and noises have clearly been studied, imitated and perfected, creating a unique piece of theatre.

Summerhall, 1-24 Aug, 3.00pm.
