WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Two Is Company - Program A
Through a series of separate yet connected 30-minute stories, the inner and outer life of a Woman is explored. Over centuries of storytelling, a woman's role in society has changed – yet some judgments, anticipations and expectations stay the same: courtship, marriage and family life are prizes to pursue, but can become constraining when achieved.
Program B: Alone in the Crowd
A theatrical study of community and the individual's place within it.
Two newly-devised projects will look at how small moments create the tapestry of our lives, giving us a place and a purpose within the communities that surround us. Each day, we spill into the crowd with our daily commutes and moment-by-moment communications, only to return to moments of silence and individuality by day's end. Are the moments we are alone necessarily defined by loneliness? How do the people we encounter influence us as individuals?
