Theatre Ad Infinitum’s New Production Opens Next Week: Bucket List
Last week’s sharing was very well received and we’re excited to continue work on our new production. Don’t worry if you missed the performance, there are two more opportunities coming up next week.
Co-Artistic Director Nir Paldi is working with award winning writer / performer Vicky Araico Casas and a talented all female ensemble to create Bucket List. Tackling social mobility, neocolonialism and one’s freedom versus one’s fate, Theatre Ad Infinitum bring to life a story about a Mexican woman’s fight to take destiny into her own hands – at all costs.
For this first stage of research and development we need you! Our audiences’ involvement is a crucial part of the creative process -we hope you can make it!
Performances of Bucket List
Thank you to Arts Council England, Theatre in the Mill, The Lowry, The North Wall and Redbridge Drama Centre for making this possible with your generous support.
Reviews for Pink Mist are out
Co-Artistic Director George Mann has started his part-time position as Associate Director at Bristol Old Vic working on a new play, Pink Mist, by award winning writer, Owen Sheers. As Associate Director and Choreographer, George worked with Director, John Retallack, to bring Sheer’s beautiful dramatic poem to the stage. Press night finished with standing ovations, and now the reviews are out:
“Beautifully performed by its young cast, John Retallack and George Mann’s production finds a physical language to match the brawny verve of Sheers’ poetry … Heartbreaking.”
– The Guardian ★★★★
“Standing ovations are rare enough that one lasted three curtain calls is worth mentioning. Pink Mist may be the most important play of the year. It is certainly one of the best.”
– What’s On Stage ★★★★★
It only plays until 11 July 2015 at Bristol Old Vic and it’s selling out – so hurry if you want to see it!
