The Nursery Festival Saturday October 18th MY NAME IS B / EGGSHELLS
*One ticket is valid for both shows*
MY NAME IS B, by Anthony Keigher, Emma Berentsen, Tiffany Murphy and Umit Erlim
1st show, 7.30pm start*
'My Name is B' explores the theme of over control and questions whether by over controlling ourselves can result in a complete loss of self-control.
The performance is built on the impulse to walk in red high heels while each performer completes/disrupts various tasks until a point of exhaustion is reached. Framing these actions is the dysfunctional character 'B', represented by four performers, accompanied by a highly repetitive dance beat.
Each performer is a protagonist in the story of 'B', fighting to be heard within a suffocating and dysfunctional world.
I want what I want and I want it now. They say I am mad. They locked me up in here.My private theatre. I will dance until my shoes fall off. This performance is inspired by Breuer and Freud's investigation into the case of Anna O. and Hans Christian Andersen's The Red Shoes.
EGGSHELLS, written by Fiona Harper, directed by Emmi Isham.
2nd show, 9pm start*
Eggshells is a two-hander, written in verse and has comic elements that addresses the very common and growing problem of anxiety disorders. Glen's gone funny and not in a good way. Hannah can't take much more of his strange behaviour and Jim thinks a Singapore Sling is the answer to all their problems.
Eggshells tells the story of Glen and Hannah, over one tumultuous evening where their relationship and mental health begins to disintegrate.
30 min ish interval between 8.30-9pm
Doors open at 7pm.
The Nursery Festival is in collaboration with MERGE festival.
