This is another production that comes under the heading of “Dance, Physical Theatre and Circus”. It’s Brain Matter(s), at Venue 13, Lochend Close, at 18:40 on Tuesday 23rd. Here’s the blurb: “For all of those who have ever questioned: what on earth are they thinking? Watch as the two halves of the brain find their way through the confusion of life and look to answer some big questions along the way. Can we ever really avoid becoming our parents? How do we feel faced with our mortality? And why can we remember the words to a song we heard twice when we were 18, but not where we put our house keys five minutes ago?”
If only we knew the answers to all that! It’s a tall order to get all that sorted in an hour show, so I’ll be interested to see what Fen’harel Theatre make of it all. Check back about 8pm to see if it made sense or all went over our heads and by then the preview blog for our next show should be available to read too.
A highly inventive dance drama with two dancers, each representing one half of the brain, as their “person” goes through all the stages of life. Quirky soundtrack, great moves and loads of humour create a really satisfying and revealing account of a life. I loved the fact that the male half was emotional and the female was factual – how very much like true life. Great stuff!
