Remote Fiction Theatre is excited to present BANGINg CYMBAL, CLANGInG GONG, written by acclaimed New Zealand playwright Jo Randerson.
Starring the Barbarian, Randerson's script is at once alienating and enticing. The dialogue sweeps from brutally broken English, to flawless French, and smoothly into classical allusion. This unusual concatenation leaves a play that manages a mysterious kind of frankness. The Barbarian is brutal, she is not from here, she is shocking, she's not like you or me, but she also makes sense – like it or not, she's one of us.
The play will be staged in the Modernist Garden, an echo of the culture with which the Barbarian is contrasted. Audiences can look forward to a striking, physical presentation from local actress Rachel Clarke. Rachel performs this 45 minute piece solo, supported by the musical talents of David Bowers-Mason. As with all Remote Fiction Theatre performers, Rachel has been participating in a disciplined system of Dynamic Conditioning, designed to enhance her physical and vocal capabilities alongside the normal rehearsal process.
