Piccole Donne (World Premiere), 30 min

Three future brides take to the stage dressed in white waiting for a wedding that will never take place. An empty  ritualistic dance symbolises the start of a life journey for  a woman , one where females exist with a pre-established identity. The show follows the  evolution of a  ‘woman’,  a process that women must undertake to liberate themselves from oppressive societal forces.

Quintetto @ 25 June

Marco Chenevier returns after winning last year’s 1st Prize Award with an extended performance of a hilarious and poignant show highlighting the perils actors face in a country blighted by financial austerity. Tonight is the night, it’s show time. But the tech and lighting crew have gone missing. The answer lies in the audience’s hands. The outcome is uncertain but the show must go on.
