While the show is definitely moralistic, unafraid to make the audience reflect on their own nature, it is not devoid of the whimsy and humour that is characteristic of the Little Eggs Collective. Moments of lightness and laughter spliced into the tale showcase the cast’s talents in clowning, which is when I can feel just how glad they are to be making their work. Behind the seriousness and content requiring audience warnings lies a true passion for craft that drives the performance style vigorously onward.
In anticipating Symphonie Fantastique, one word I will give to it is dynamic. This show is surely going to be an excitement of many varieties. There are high highs and oozy cools, then, more than ever before, low lows and shades of darkness. When I didn’t understand what scene they were working on, I could tell by their sensibility how it was going to play out. There’s a bag and a half full of different moods hauled into this new work.
It seems as if the world we live in is plagued by one crisis after another. In these unprecedented times, many people are staying connected with the luxury of the internet, through social media in particular. There are so many advantages to the connections we maintain with others via social media, it feels as if any disadvantages would be heavily outweighed by everything good the internet is doing for us.
