REVIEW: Symphonie Fantastique

REVIEW: Symphonie Fantastique
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 the Room with Little Eggs - Symphonie Fantastique

In the Room with Little Eggs - Symphonie Fantastique
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.

FEATURE: Disconnected
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.

REVIEW / INTERVIEW FEATURE: Safe

REVIEW / INTERVIEW FEATURE: Safe
Safety and security are things we naturally seek, whether it’s through our habits, or our familiar routines. Throughout our lives the things we once were comforted by may no longer be enough. There are places we outgrow, or arms we move on from. This is explored in the play Safe, as we follow Carol, a homemaker who needs to move on from a place she used to call home.
