On from 05 Feb 2009 till 07 Mar 2009
Gate Theatre
by Alexandra Wood
Genre(s): New Writing


World Premiere
By Alexandra Wood
Inspired by Arthur Schnitzler's LA RONDE

Sexual brief encounters are exposed and exlpored in this bold new interpretation of Arthur Schnitzler's radical 1897 play. Dance and text intertwine to reveal the spoken and unspoken, seen and unseen dynamics between people in search of physical and emotional fulfilment.

Natalie Abrahami and Alexandra Wood, winner of the George Devine Award 2007, collaborate together again after working together on the acclaimed The Eleventh Capital which won the Royal Court Young Writers Festival in 2007.
