THE DISAPPEARING ACT
Open Sky Theatre

Directed by Claire Coaché (2003-2005 Season)
Written by Lisle Turner
Performed by Eline Hallem (2015-2017 Season), Alice Parsloe (2009-2010 Season), Liz Crowther (2004-2005 Season)

 

Blending new-writing and visual physical theatre, Open Sky tell the tale of magician’s assistant Edie Rose. On the eve of her fortieth year Edie Rose is finally hosting her own show. To assist she conjures up two versions of herself, one younger and one older. Together the three Edies (aged 20,40 and 60) re-examine the loves, hopes and losses of her life using séance, mentalism and dark, mysterious magic. The Disappearing Act is an alchemy of perspectives: the hopefulness of youth, the wisdom of experience and the disappearing act of ageing.

Based on true stories from female performers.

SEA SICK

Written and performed by Alanna Mitchell
Directed by Franco Boni with Ravi Jain (2004-2006 season)

 

 

The ocean contains the switch of life. Not land, not the atmosphere. The ocean. And that switch can be turned off. 

The Theatre Centre presents Sea Sick, Alanna Mitchell’s critically acclaimed production about climate change, and the state of the global ocean, which has toured Canada and the world. Experience this powerful story in which Mitchell uses science and delicate wit to tell us about her journey to the bottom of the ocean, the demons she discovered there, and her hope for the future. 

Mitchell is an award-winning Canadian journalist and author (New York Times, CBC’s Quirks & Quarks, Globe and Mail, and more) who writes about science and social trends specializing in investigative reporting. Sea Sick is inspired by her international bestseller and award-winning book of the same name.

Praise for Sea Sick
★★★★ “Can a science journalist save the world through the power of theatre?”
— The Guardian

“a thrilling…cautionary tale”
– Toronto Star

“Terrifying, laugh-out-loud funny, and ultimately hopeful, Mitchell’s Sea Sick
is a must-see…”

MORTGAGE

Created a Monster (Artistic Director Briony O'Callaghan)

and David Glass Ensemble (Associate Artist)

 

Director : David Glass (former student)

With : Briony O'Callaghan (2012-2014 season), Simon Gleave (2013-2015 season) and François Testory

Burnt to a crisp, and in the care of two demonic drag-doctors, Mortgage isn't having the best day.  As we circumnavigate her miserable, short and terrible life down the corridors of the asylum (Purgatory), where the patients are sane and the doctors are lunatics, the healing is a hell all of it's own.

Mortgage is a horror-farce which draws on theatre of cruelty, slapstick, film noir, magic and violence. Not for the faint-hearted. 

13th April 2019 - 14:00 - SYCHRONO THEATRO, ATHENS

15th-16th-17th-18th-19th-20th April 2019 - TRISTAN BATES THEATRE

HOME

created by Geoff Sobelle (Season 1995-1997)

Directed by: Lee Sunday Evans

Performers: Sophie Bortolussi, Josh Crouch, Jennifer Kidwell, Elvis Perkins, Justin Rose, Geoff Sobelle, Ching Valdez-Arran

Music by: Elvis Perkins

HOME is a large-scale performance work that explores and explodes the relationship between “House” and “Home.” A visual physical spectacle, HOME combines dance, illusion, live music, home-spun engineering, and an inventive use of audience interaction to compose a work that asks, where is home? If it is not a place, what is home? In the face of entropy, we struggle to build infra- structure, family, community, art. We fail, and we try again.
