Some light entertainment TBC
Some Light entertainment in troubled times will become Dead Rabbits Theatre Companies new theatre production.
The story will be told from the perspective of migrants, under the auspices of Spiegel-tent imagery. In the heart of the show is a female protagonist, it is driven by female stories, with an artistic direction from an Eastern European woman who experienced the ‘shadows’ of war herself. In this production we will use the community’s voice, heard through the workshops and public showings from the larger “what about us project” to infuse our stories. In this way the production of “Some Light Entertainment in Those Troubled Times” puts the community on our creative team.
A tale of times where lightness of human spirit mixes with dark echoes of fascist shadows. A tale of people who seek freedom and safety which always escape them. The banality of evil is as pervasive and present.
Exotic, Decadent and Different, full of glitter and tears, they wait in shadows, full of stories that no one cares to hear….their bodies contorted and twisted like little girl’s dolls… For a moment, we can hear their voices, and see them through the bright light of cheap entertainment.
This is a story about people. People who were swept by the tornado of war and its consequences.
