  • Acting Class Beginners

Directed by Joana Nicolaas Ponder

Course description: This is theater of the absurd and here we are really going to play around with that. Blending Ionesco with improvisation we’ll create a show that’s going to explore the absurdity. In this class we not only focus on growing our acting skills but also spend time working on our improv skills.

Performance: You are cordially invited to the Old Man and Old Woman’s house to hear the revelation of the Old Man’s great discovery. Eugene Ionesco’s The Chairs is an absurdist tragic farce and we, the actors, have worked on blending absurdism with improvisation. Be prepared to go on an absurd theatrical experiment with us, and perhaps you’ll hear what the meaning of life is.

PlotClassical Greek tragedy and comedy in English, like you’ve never seen it before! We’ve taken parts of pieces and juxtaposed them together so that you can view rich Greek theater history in a whole new jacket. 

In the first half, you’ll see monologues from some of your favorite Greek characters including Medea, Oedipus and Antigone. In the second half the players will improvise in situations that Joana has created for their Greek characters. Now you may finally get the answer to “If Medea and Clytemnestra were to meet what would they talk about?”

The Spectacular Spectacle of the Marvellous Dancing Skeleton

Performance On: 26/11/2017
Course Sold Out
Started On: 09/2017

By Carolina Quintana & Act Attack Members

PlotThe dance of life; powerful, elegant…not quite sane. Emotions clash, opinions cause wars. Just as we all have opinions, we all have…a skeleton. What if one skeleton had the power? 

The marvelous dancing skeleton may sound peculiar and extraordinary, and people may not realize the connection that it has to each of our lives. In fact, the dancing skeleton represents all of us, and more than that, it represents the difficulties we all encounter in our everyday lives. In the play, you will see many different characters fighting for the dancing skeleton with all of them having different reasons to win. The spectacle of the dancing skeleton is a short representation of the ordinary life, through humour, fun and intensity! Curious to know how ordinary life looks like, in one hour? Then don’t miss out on the Spectacular Spectacle of the Marvellous Dancing Skeleton!
