Complicité, end of year show by Acting Now Physical Theatre School
Tue 11 July at Corpus Playroom Theatre, Cambridge
An original play devised by Acting Now's acting students, led by Artistic Director Marina Pallares-Elias.
Complicité is a tragicomedy that uses humour as a vehicle to reclaim a role for the elders in our society. The story takes place in a residence for the elderly and explores the dreams and disenchantment of the protagonists while denouncing the loneliness and powerless position they feel whilst denouncing their perceived loneliness and powerlessness.
We are very grateful to present the performance at Corpus Playroom, following a great experience in April 2017 with “Keep Holding My Hand”.
The play has no scenography. We purposely present an austere mise-en-scène so the focus is on the performers. All the spaces and objects are recreated through physical theatre.
