Trixie and Monkey: Flipping and Stripping

No Comments 21 February 2013

‘Call it role play at home’, Trixie Little announces, ‘but what we do on stage is different.’ On stage she’s elaborately costumed, as is her assistant, the Evil hate monkey.

Michael Burke in Cubehead

No Comments 20 February 2013

Erno Rubik’s “Magic Cube” presents a frustrating challenge. Without the necessary strategy, you can blindly twist and turn for hours, chasing your tail through a seemingly infinite labyrinth of multicoloured permutations.

Lifted!

A lot can happen in a lift. Your boyfriend of two years might reveal he has a wife and daughter; your work colleague might tell you you’re about to be fired; you might bump into your husband’s mistress – who might or might not be a terrorist; hell, you might even get a chance to […]

The Cinematic Scores

No Comments 20 February 2013

Magic is taking place beneath the exposed rafters of the PS Art Space. Five short films, volume dulled, are shown against a blank white wall. Beside the projected images sit the alternating forms of five sets of musicians. It is the task of the musicians to bring to life, through their craft, a new interpretation […]

No Comments 20 February 2013

For anyone who did not see The Canterbury Tales – Part One, do not let that be the reason you miss Part Two.

The Canterbury Tales – Part One

No Comments 18 February 2013

Ribald, irreverent, occasionally farcical, periodically scatological, but always varied – such a description could apply as easily to Geoffrey Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales as to a Fringe World show. A thought of this sort clearly occurred to a member of the KNUTS theatre company, which is staging two productions based on Chaucer’s Tales. Directed by […]
