Short Cut(s)/Catharsis - Blue Elephant Theatre

Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

SWEET or Sour is presenting Short Cut(s) and Catharsis, a double bill of performance art, at the Blue Elephant Theatre – from June 11 to June 13, 2009.

Catharsis depicts the personal quest of a disgraced man for his rebirth through a series of choreographed rituals and visual confessions. It explores the themes of redemption while tackling the sensitive subject of self-esteem.

Catharsis is conceived, devised and performed by Tonny A.

Short Cut(s) is a performance installation inspired by the Ancient Greek and Medieval theories of The Classical Elements.

Referring to Robert Altman’s film, Short Cuts, this experimental piece re-interprets some of D.H. Lawrence existentialist poems to explore the feelings of isolation, resistance and the constant fear of alienation experienced by five lost souls condemned to wander eternally in the Abyss.

Conceived and directed by Tonny A, Short Cut(s) is performed by Aysegul Asan Murphy, Patric Deony, Jay Nelson, Luke Putres and Bronwen Sharp.

Tickets: £10, £7 concessions, £6 Southwark residents.

Time: 8pm.
