Double Feature: Beautiful Things & The Dreaming
Poetic and dynamic improv from the Netherlands and the UK // Performed in English
Friday, October 28th 2016 // Mainfranken Theater // 8.30 PM
This show will deliver you two doses of international improvisation! Two ensembles from different countries, each with their own style and yet both passionate about exploring the cutting edge of improvisation. Each will present their format in one half of the show.
To begin, we welcome Dutch group Rocky Amaretto with their format, Beautiful Things. In this show, a poet will recite a poem specifically written for the night, which will inspire a collage of scenes. New to this poem we will take you on a journey. Sometimes we will find the obvious, sometimes a hidden gem. Sometimes raw, sometimes hilarious, sometimes dramatic, but always fierce. Prepare for a ride.
After that, prepare for the international debut of a British institution. The Dreaming are an "avant-garde art collective" who "channel the Jungian skein" to "organically develop a perspective from several mouths and bodies". This is apparently only "the beginning of a fluid journey", a "revery", in which "the audience is complicit". No, we've no idea what they mean either. They’re very earnest, but maybe not as serious as they imagine.
